Jeb Bush is blowing out the competition in one regard: ad spending.

New ad tracking figures collected by NBC News show Bush and his allies have spent $49 million, representing more than a third of the $139 million spent on ads in the 2016 race. (At this point in the 2012 race, $35 million had been spent on ads, NBC News reported.)

Second is Marco Rubio and allies with $25.6 million. Rubio is supported by a super PAC and a dark money group.
