Any Idea How Much Manny Villar has Already Spent on his Campaign?

He once said that in order to keep yourself afloat in the tight presidential race, one needs to have at least P1 billion on his campaign chest.

And I think he is really living up to his words; a certain quality we all need for our leaders, a far cry from the lousy excuses of always pointing out “lapse of judgment” to all moral failures in governance by GMA.  But this certain issue is not of course something plausible.

Manny Villar has been all over town, trying to capture everyone’s fancy up to a voter’s dreaming; riding and employing well a last-song syndrome among the kids through his campaign jingles; bombarding us with all sorts of political ads on primetime on all networks, from OFWs being saved from the torture of foreign employers but will have to live a similar torturous situation here in the country due to poverty, to the Michael V. impersonations that made me lose my interest on him; paying Big G (google) for his online ads; Facebook ads; going around the nation with Willie Revillame giving away house and lot to hapless people waiting for manna; plastic bottles with his face on it; radio ads, print ads; courting Manny Pacquiao; and all sorts of freebies one desperate man can imagine, so long as his paycheck could still withstand the potential reds off his balance sheet.

Manny Villar obviously started campaigning way, way ahead of others, though the Supreme Court has called it “freedom of expression” rendering our capacity to think inutile with just the playing of words against the real personal intentions of political vultures.

To this, I am very much wondering:  how much Manny Villar already so far have spent on his political campaign? I have no idea, really, but just looking at all these things he is bombarding us makes my brain go hemorrhagic on doing the mathematical calculation.

Here some screenshots of his online campaigns:

One of his political ads:

These ads, and all the spending are little by little doing some wonder on his numbers, as the latest survey shows that he is up by some points second to Noynoy Aquino, and the latter’s lead diminishing by two points.

Now,  my wondering leads me to another one:  How will Manny Villar recoup all the money he has spent on his campaign if he wins the presidency, and if he loses?

So, I ask guys.  For you, how much Manny Villar may have so far spent on his political campaign? Any figures, estimates?  My guess is more than P1 billion.
