The only self-funded candidate, Donald Trump, has begun to consider fundraising for a general election campaign, if he gets the Republican nomination.
"As Donald Trump moves closer to the Republican presidential nomination, the billionaire real estate developer faces a looming question: Will he reverse his pledge to self-fund and seek donations for a general-election campaign that could cost as much as $1 billion?
"Trump offered conflicting answers this week, first suggesting in a debate Thursday night that he had not yet decided whether to pursue outside contributions, only to backtrack Friday, when he said he was referring to money for the national party."--Matea Gold, The Washington Post
