$3,600,422.47 for one candidate.

Those ten weekly $10,000.00 contributions from Rex Sinquefield at the end of 2014, after the $50,000.00 and $750,000.00 contributions, prompted one wag to sarcastically coin the sobriquet “Catherine Layaway”. There were no contributions over $5,000.00 in 2015, but after that start in 2014 who would need any? Other things were going on early in 2015. The contributions picked up again in 2016 in large but distinctly non-round numbers.
