Senator Ted Cruz may have used up $153,000 in campaign funds when he was running for senator last year to buy his own book, reported Forbes reporter Zach Everson on Monday.

In a 2020 Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing, Cruz’s campaign spent $153,000 at retailer Books-a-Million. It is not clear what books were purchased – the filing simply listed the purchase as “books.”

But the money was spent in the two months following the release of his book “One Vote Away: How A Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History” on September 29, 2020.

According to the filing, the campaign spent $40,000 on October 15, two weeks after his book was published. In early November, it spent another $11,900. The biggest spend came on December 1, when his campaign spent $111,900 on books.
