(CNN) -– Rep. Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign spent nearly $2 million more than it raised in the third quarter, but was still left with more than $1 million in cash-on-hand funds, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission Saturday.
In total, Bachmann raised $3.9 million and spent $5.9 million. Her cash-on-hand total came in at $1.3 million.
Bachmann’s cash on hand reflects money received in previous quarters. Bachmann went into the third quarter with over $3 million in cash-on-hand funds.
The financial report also shows Bachmann’s campaign holding more than $500,000 in debt.
A recent CNN Poll of Polls showed 5% of Republican voters naming Bachmann as their preferred candidate.
Well, gosh, it's awfully expensive to get your make-up, hair, and nails done so frequently, isn't it? And don't forget the endless supply of red suit jackets and flag pins.
- -- - and this coming from a woman who said spending is out of control in Washington. Give me a --- break! What a waste on tax payers hard earn coins!
So much for "Cut Cap and Balance"!
Michelle Bachmann desperately needs a "BAIL-OUT" and a "WAY OUT FROM THIS SHAME".I wonder if she would go on CNN to defend her brutal accounting.
Not one of these right wingnuts can stay within their budget. More of that conservative , spend, spend, spend, belief.
With all the reporting right now, why is it that most of these so-called conservatives have spent more than they take in? They all claim the same thing, cut spending, stop the tax and spend democrats, yada, yada, yada. They are all hypocrites and worse than that, liars. The democrats have not been the tax and spend that the GOP has been pushing the lie about. Just another one of the GOP's big lies! All of the GOP candidates stay with the GOP talking points, lies. All of the GOP will be very surprised in 2012 when thay are all voted out of office.
Like my ex with credit cards. But my praying didn't help!
So much for HER being a fiscal conservative ... or is this yet another case of Tea Party, "Do as I say, not do as I do?"
she needs to quit and go on Dancing with the Stars!
She has zero chance. Seriously, she is delusional and anyone who thinks she is going to get elected is on crack too.
She is going to save the economy and she cannot even keep her own campaign on budget.
Why should I vote for Michelle Bachmann? Can someone give me about 2 or 3 of the best reasons?
it seems to be a theme here; several of the gop candidates have spent more than their campaigns have raised. how on earth can these people stand in front of us preaching about fiscal responsibility, and asking for our votes?
Isn't this one of the ones yelling about government spending more than they have? On top of that millions were and are being spend on someone with zero chance of being elected.
Bachmann has been living of the tax payers for far too long, and it is about time she went back to do what she was elected to do and show up in MN and earn her paycheck or let someone else take over. The joke is no longer funny about her running for the toughest job in the country, and if she cared about her country she would do the right thing and admit she has no chance of ever getting more then 5% of the vote, let the real candidates try and gain momenteum and stop the sideshows of circus characters like Bachmann
Bauchman, Santorum, Gingrich, and Huntsman will all be broke and out of the race by Christmas after New Hampshire's primary.
I'm strongest belived that repblican will be great for presdient buchman or mccain
I want tell people black and white that I said mocked out of occupy cause black white are ganster to keep used drugs so black and white need get need some money for drugs that is true
She's one of those fiscal conservative candidates, right? Chiding the government for spending more than they take in..right? Ya think maybe Gawd "called" on her to spend more than she takes in to show what a hypocrite she is?
She must have hired Joe the Accountant, the guy that developed the 999 Plan for Cain.
Deficit spending! Deficit spending! Evil! Evil!
Repblican need keep out of occupy
Deficits don't matter if you're a Republican.... Just ask DICK!!
Is this really news? She started the quarter with $3 million in cash on hand. Her poll numbers are slipping. If she doesn't get them back up, her contributions will continue to slide. Of course she is going to use the available cash on hand to try to reverse the dropping numbers. Might not help, but until her account reaches zero, it makes sense for her to do it.
Okay, she raised 4 and spent 6 – I bet she was one heck of a tax attorney.
And this is the person SOME Tea Partiers want to President...great example...obviously unable to practice which she preaches...
But than again, ALL GOP candidates are spending more than they are taking in...
