West Loans Campaign $6.8M After Raising $11K

ABC News reports:

Kanye West loaned $6.8 million to his 2020 presidential committee, essentially self-funding his campaign during the first month and a half of his run, his initial campaign disclosure report shows.

In its first disclosure filing submitted to the Federal Election Commission on Friday, the West campaign reported bringing in a total of $6.8 million between July 15 and Aug. 31, with $6.76 million of that coming from West’s loans to the campaign.

The campaign raised a little under $11,500 from eight donors that gave between $200 and $1,000 and smaller donors who gave under $200 during that time, the report shows.
