Democratic Candidates Spend Nearly $700k To Fly Clintons Around U.S.

Democrats griping about the President’s fundraising or lack thereof for their midterm campaign might want to take note of the expensive tab the Clintons billed campaigns for their private jet travel.

Never to travel in coach like other potential 2016 candidates, a new report from BuzzFeed shows that Democratic candidates struggling for campaign cash were forced to spend nearly $700,000 through October 15 for the Clintons’ private jet travel. That number is only expected to grow as new FEC reports are released later this month.

Keep in mind it would only take 4 hours worth of speaking gigs for Hillary to have picked up the travel tab herself.
