Cruz, Anti-Trump Forces Spend $6M on Indiana Airwaves

Forces supporting Ted Cruz and opposing Donald Trump spent more than $6 million on advertisements in Indiana, which holds its presidential primary on Tuesday, according to the latest ad-spending data from SMG Delta.

The Cruz campaign and outside groups backing him spent $3.3 million on ads in the state, while organizations opposed to Trump - including the conservative Club for Growth and Our Principles PAC - dished out an additional $2.8 million.

By comparison, Trump's campaign spent $960,000.

In the Democratic race, Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign spent $1.5 million over the airwaves, versus no money at all on ads for Hillary Clinton's campaign or groups backing her.
