Frugal Hillary Clinton Campaign Spending Money Fast, Feeling The Bern

Only a few months ago, Hillary Clinton's campaign was highlighting how frugal their operation is. That's already changed.

FEC reports show that Clinton raised over $47 million in Q2, and a campaign spokesman says she raised over $28 million in Q3. Her campaign also spent over $18 million in Q2 and over $24 million in Q3.

That means her campaign has spent around 56 percent of the $75 million her campaign brought in from the start of the campaign. In Q3, her burn rate was about 85 percent of the $28 million she brought in.

But that's not the only burn she's feeling.

Bernie Sanders (whose supporters have shown their support with the hashtag
