Biden’s transition report, made public Monday by the General Service Administration, shows Biden spent even more — $24 million — as he readied to assume the presidency.
Payroll expenses topped the list at $13.6 million, followed by travel and event expenses at a little more than $5 million.
The 1,021-page filing shows thousands of people contributed to the Biden effort. They include well-known figures who made the $5,000 maximum contribution, such as Chicago financier Mellody Hobson, producer Jeffrey Katzenberg and Jeff Zients, who would become the White House’s Covid-19 response coordinator, to people who donated as little as $2.
Presidential transitions are funded with a combination of private and public funds.
The GSA’s belated acknowledgment of Biden win allowed his team to tap more than $6 million in government funds for the transition.
