The postmortems on the Democratic side are going to long and ugly. One of the most frustrating aspects will be how much they outspent the Trump campaign, only to get soundly defeated.
Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent twice as much as Donald Trump on her losing presidential campaign https://t.co/hQswU8kVLe

She set a record:
Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records.
The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.
Clinton’s expensive machine tore through $131.8 million in just the final weeks, finishing with about $839,000 on hand as of Nov. 28.
Team Trump spent $94.5 million in the home stretch — from Oct. 20 to Nov. 28 — and had $7.6 million left.
While the numbers are unprecedented, this is nothing new. Democrats (particularly the Clintons) have been wasting other people’s money for decades.
Typical Dem practice-overspend for nothing. https://t.co/vT9rJe5Otb
