Kanye spent over $3 million to gather signatures for his presidential campaign. Kanye hired a group from “Let the Voters Decide” to go across 15 states getting signatures in order to secure a spot on the local ballot. Kanye spent the most money in Arizona, upwards of one million dollars to get 93,000 signatures, however, a judge barred him from the ballot. He was also barred from the Ohio and Virginia ballots. Kanye currently is on 12 state ballots including Kentucky and the battleground state of Iowa. According to the FEC, Kanye has already spent in total $6 million on his independent campaign.
