Outside groups have spent $11 million in advertisements attacking Donald Trump in the March 15 primary states of Florida and Illinois, according to ad-spending data from SMG Delta.

In Florida, the groups American Future Fund, Club for Growth and Our Principles PAC have spent a combined $4.2 million against Trump -- in addition to the estimated $4.3 million that Marco Rubio's Super PAC, Conservative Solutions PAC, has aired versus Trump.
