Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign this week is outspending Hillary Clinton's in terms of political advertisements, according to ad-spending data from NBC News partner SMG Delta.
Sanders has spent a combined $900,000 over the airwaves in the early nominating states, while Clinton has spent slightly more than $750,000 in those same states. For the entire presidential race, Clinton has outspent Sanders over the airwaves, $13.8 million to $9.6 million.
The Vermont senator certainly has enough money: The Sanders campaign said it raised $33 million in the 4th fundraising quarter (from October to December) -- just $4 million less than Clinton's haul.
