Running for office is expensive and the Rules are tightly monitored! Election Campaign funding comes primarily from four (4) sources.
1. Public Funding which allows taxpayers to contribute money from their tax refund to a Presidential Campaign fund which is then divided up between the candidates.
2. Through Political party contributions.
3. Political Action Committees (PACs), which are political fundraising organizations who want to help a candidate win.
4. Private funding. Less than 10% if contribution from individual donors.
