The amount spent by the American rapper Kanye West on the failed presidential campaign has been revealed. This is reported by the publication People, citing its own source.
According to an insider, in 2020, the hip-hop artist poured $ 12 million from personal funds to fund his presidential campaign. This amount constituted the majority of the total budget. In total, West’s campaign headquarters spent $ 13.2 million.
Much of the money was spent trying to get on the ballot in the largest number of states. The rapper faced additional problems due to the late announcement of the start of the campaign and missing the end of the registration.
In August last year, the hip-hop artist applied to run for the presidency of the United States. Ultimately, West was allowed to vote in only 12 states, where he received about 66 thousand votes.
