Capitol Report: What Democrats can do with the money left over from their failed 2020 presidential runs

Democratic presidential hopefuls have started to drop out of the battle for their party’s 2020 nomination, with long-shot candidate Eric Swalwell on Monday becoming the first to bow out.

Every exit will trigger a big financial question: What to do with the money remaining from the failed campaign?

Politicians with leftover campaign funds are barred from using the money for personal expenses, but beyond that they have a lot of options.

They can refund money to donors or make contributions to political allies, including other candidates, party groups and political action committees, as MarketWatch noted after the 2018 midterm elections. They also can spend the residual cash on winding down their campaign operations or donate it to charity.
