Share this article Share Share As we enter into the final days of the presidential race, the two candidates are getting ready to take the stage together for a debate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Both candidates have been busy on the campaign trail, and they’ve had some major news to announce.
Donald Trump announced a new ad campaign, which he called “the most important in the history of politics.”
He also announced a $100 million campaign war chest for his Super PAC.
Both Trump and Sanders have been raising money for months.
But in a campaign where it’s been easy to be distracted by all the other stuff, Trump has decided to be more specific in what he’s looking to accomplish.
Trump will spend more than $10 million in the final weeks of the campaign, according to an Associated Press report.
And the billionaire is not shy about using his massive money to build out his own campaign infrastructure, including a new headquarters in New York.
“I’m going to spend more money in the next two months than I’ve ever spent in any year in my life, I think that’s going to be a big part of our victory,” Trump said at a news conference.
Trump’s plan is to have at least 10 staff members in his campaign headquarters, including three people in New Jersey.
“We’re going to do a lot of things, not just in the states, but all across the country,” he said.
Sanders will spend $10.5 million to $15 million in his super PAC, according a Reuters report.
He will also have a super PAC called Our Revolution.
That PAC will have a smaller staff, with a smaller number of staffers in Washington.
“I think that is a big, big investment,” Sanders said at the rally in Nevada.
“It’s going be much easier for me to be out there and speak and be a candidate in New Hampshire and Nevada and South Carolina and Arizona,” Sanders added.
A Trump spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Sanders has also been making stops across the United States to promote his campaign.
He’s been to New Hampshire, Iowa, and Michigan and has been holding events in both states.
A Sanders campaign official told Bloomberg News that Sanders plans to spend $5 million in Iowa this week and $6 million in Michigan this week.
The campaign is also spending money in Wisconsin, New Hampshire (which Sanders won with 55 percent of the vote in April), and Colorado.
The Sanders campaign also announced plans to send two of its field staffers to the Iowa caucuses on Tuesday.
Sanders is holding a town hall in Des Moines, Iowa.
He said he’s planning to “ask a lot” of questions at the event.
