Campaign finance



This is an overview of the money used in the campaign as it is reported to National Elections Commission (NEC) and released on January 3, 2022. Total raised is the sum of all individual contributions (large and small), loans from the candidate, and transfers from other campaign committees. The last column, Cash On Hand (COH), has been calculated by subtracting the "spent" amount from the "raised" amount, thereby showing the remaining cash each campaign had available for its future spending as of January 4, 2022. The NEC set $50 million as the maximum amount a campaign can spend during the primaries, however candidates can still raise money after surpassing the expenditure limit set by the NEC, they cannot use it during the primaries but they can use it during the General Election.

Per the Ramstad Election Law, 40% of a campaign’s contributions is required to be from individual contributions (large or small). Businesses, lobbying groups, organizations (including NGOs), and juridical persons can donate to a campaign but their contributions should not exceed 60% of the total contributions. Unions are except from this rule, because under the Ramstad Election Law they are considered as individuals rather than organizations.
