Here's How Much Money Kanye West Spent While Running for President

Kanye West ran for President of the United States in 2020 and the Federal Election Commission just revealed how much money he spent during his failed campaign.

The 43-year-old rapper and entrepreneur spent a total of $13.2 million during his campaign, which resulted in just about 66,000 votes.

That means that about $200 was spent on the campaign for each vote received.

Of that $13.2 million, a lot of the money was from Kanye‘s wallet and the report revealed how that money was spent.
