Where the Obama and Romney Campaigns Spent Money During the Election

Which campaign spent more at Pizza Hut?

Forget about revenue increases versus spending cuts. How about Domino’s versus Pizza Hut? American versus United? Target versus Walmart? The receipts from the campaigns of President Obama and Mitt Romney show where the candidates stood on these issues of national importance.

These figures are taken from expense reports filed with the Federal Election Commission by each candidate’s chief campaign committee as of October 17. The campaigns spent more in the final weeks before the election and through employee reimbursements, per-diems, and third parties. These figures don’t include spending by political-action committees.
