How Much Does it Cost to Run for President?

"The answer to that question is remarkably complicated," the New York Times reports. "It depends in large part on how much a candidate is able to raise. And it can vary wildly, from the candidate who operates on a shoestring budget to the gold-plated, multistate operations of the most serious contenders."

"There's no way to know, in advance, how the spending will turn out this time. But experts say they are bracing for a record year that includes extensive fund-raising and spending by the candidates themselves and huge sums from so-called 'outside' groups who can now raise an unlimited amount of money from corporations."
