According to the Federal Election Commission report, West spent $12.4 million of his own money toward the failed campaign.
The ‘Birthday Party’ candidate only received approximately $2 million from outside donors. In total, his campaign contributions were $14,538,989.74
West’s team reportedly spent $13.2 million throughout his presidential run. According to People, more than half of that money (about $7.5 million) was spent on his efforts to gain ballot access in as many states as possible.
When all was said and done, he reportedly only received 60,000 votes.
He announced his bid for president on July 4 of last year, but ultimately lost out to Joe Biden.
