SHARE 2012 presidential candidates still in debt from failed campaigns

The 2012 presidential election has long been over — but many of the candidates’ campaign debts still linger years later.

The Washington Post has broken down how much each Republican candidate owed at the end of March, based on Federal Election Commission filings. It’s not good to be Newt Gingrich.

Here’s a closer look:

Santorum’s debt is spread across 11 different companies while Gingrich’s astounding tab includes $649,117.54 he owes himself for travel expenses.

Three of the candidates are debt free: Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and Rick Perry.
