I'd laugh if he won because that's a near impossible feat.

Most campaigns of people who lose elections actually wind up with debts that never get paid off, unless that person wants to run for office again. This is why being a contractor who supplies things to political campaigns is a big gamble. If they are winning, they will want more stuff (i.e. t-shirts, yard signs, tv ads) and so you can make a ton of money, but if they lose, they will start asking you to supply stuff on credit and then often never pay it.

They are the same people who keep kick-starter a float.

Yeah except barring the company folding you usually get something out of kickstarter.

"As Bob Biersack from the Federal Election Commission points out, most candidates don’t have much left over to begin with. Campaigning is expensive, and “leftover” money gets used for bills and debts first, including expenses incurred while winding down an abandoned campaign or a lost political office.

Candidates do sometimes end up with surplus funds, though, particularly if they’re incumbent members of Congress who decide not to run for another term. State and local governments have their own rules, but those running for federal office — including presidential candidates — must abide by strict FEC guidelines when it comes to their extra campaign money. They can donate an unlimited amount to a charity or political party. They can also, within limits, make contributions directly to other candidates. A campaign committee can give up to $2000 per election to each candidate. If the committee is converted into a political action committee, the limit jumps to $5000 – but to be established as a PAC, the committee would have to be in existence for six months, receive contributions from 50 donors, and make contributions to five recipients.

What candidates can’t do with leftover money is use it for personal expenses. Retiring federal lawmakers used to be able to pocket extra cash and use it for cars, vacations, clothes, pet grooming, whatever — but that changed in 1989 with the passage of the Ethics Reform Act."

Unless you're a Clinton, then you donate it to yourself through charity.

"Oh no, officer. That's not my bank account, that's my charity which is directly linked to my bank account. Perfectly legal stuff happening here."

I started to become skeptical of Bernie when all I saw on reddit was "Please donate more!" on the top of r/all every day.

Yes. Use people with no association to a candidate to judge their worthiness. That's how the world works, right?
