New York Times: Ted Cruz, Donald Trump Have Deepest Pockets Ahead of ‘Super Tuesday’

The New York Times reports that Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have the most cash on hand as the Republican presidential primary heats up in earnest.

Mr. Cruz is the best financed candidate in the Republican race, beginning February with $13.6 million in cash on hand. Mr. Trump, a billionaire, has raised millions of dollars from small donors and lent himself millions more, including nearly $5 million in January, a month in which he paid out more than $11.5 million, the most sustained spending of his presidential bid so far.
