But O'Rourke's opponent, Republican Sen.

Congressman Beto O'Rourke has broken fund-raising records in his challenge to Texas Senator Ted Cruz, but on a CNN townhall this new liberal "Wonder Boy" made comments that should doom his $60 million campaign and terminate his political future.

"The Democrat's latest campaign report, filed early Friday with the Federal Election Commission, showed he brought in almost $8.5 million from October 1 to 17, padding a tally that was already the most of for any Senate candidate anywhere, ever", adds the author.

According to the Chronicle, no general election U.S. Senate race until now has cost more than $77 million-a record set in MA in 2012 when Democrat Elizabeth Warren defeated Republican Scott Brown.

The Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a fundraising organization for President Donald Trump, was second during the period with spending of US$3.1 million.

Hedge fund billionaire and political activist Tom Steyer spent $1.7 million on Facebook to promote his Need to Impeach campaign, seeking Trump's ouster. Scott Walker (R - WI Governor) and Beto O'Rourke (D - TX Senate) have already posted, and Facebook expects more candidates to jump in shortly.

Another top spender was the "Vote No on 8" committee, which opposed a California ballot measure that would cap the profits of dialysis clinics, and is backed by major dialysis companies like DaVita, Kaiser Health News reported. And it's letting people with and without Facebook accounts see it.

Facebook released the data through its new "Ad Archive Report" tool on Wednesday. In total, it reaped $256.4 million in revenue from political ads this campaign cycle. Since May, more than 100,000 ads have been run on Trump's page, according to the company.
