Court House - A political candidate, by law, keeps the money given to his campaign but he can only use the money for political purposes. About 20 years ago the law allowed them to use it for personal use but now it's political. This is why politicians suspend their campaigns and not end them. When you suspend, the account stays active and you are able to give the money to other candidates or for your own political purposes, like Rand Paul will in Kentucky. Obama paid all of Clinton's expenses after he won in 2008. His war chest is huge. This is why everyone gets in the race, because the money is so good.
