(AP) -

Campaign finance reports filed late Friday show Donald Trump poured more than $7.5 million of his own money into his presidential campaign in April, bringing his total personal investment to more than $43 million since he declared his candidacy.

Trump reported spending more than $56 million during the primary season, in which he swatted away 16 Republican rivals and relied heavily on wall-to-wall media coverage of his outsized personality and often inflammatory remarks.

His final two rivals, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, dropped out of the race at the beginning of May.

rump spent nearly $9.4 million in April alone. Much of Trump's money has come from his own pocket, but he reported about $1.7 million in donations last month.
