While we're about big money in political campaign...

Most GOP candidates being in the pocket of big business is no shock to anyone. For example, literally Ted Cruz' entire campaign, at least until a month ago, was made up of some $35m donated by three families. This vastly contrasts to Bernie Sanders who has consistently distanced himself from any attempts of big money to buy aid him. Not that any big company would like to associate themselves with a self-identified socialist.

And there's of course Trump, who won't hear of super PACs, and would rather spend his own money for campaigning, and capitalize on being seen as a maverick in result of that.
