Hillary Clinton could have bought a decent-sized chunk of New York real estate with the $1.2 billion that she raised and spent for her losing election, according to a new report by the New York Post.

In contrast, Donald Trump raised and spent $600 million in his narrow and shocking victory. That budget includes $66 million of his own cash.

Trump’s 63 million widely distributed votes cost him roughly $9.50 each. Her 65.5 million bunched-up votes each cost roughly $18.32.

According to the Post:

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.

The figures include all spending by the campaigns, PACs and party committees.
