The Democratic challenger to incumbent Sen.

For example, a page supporting Texas Democratic US Senate contender Beto O'Rourke, reveals spending of $5.4 million from May-Oct. 20. Some analysts have cautioned Democrats that they're focusing too much attention on headline-grabbing races like Texas at the expense of more winnable contests.

According to the Federal Election Commission, O'Rourke has the money to burn.

Cruz has raised a total $29.7 million in the same time frame, Q2 2017 through October 17, 2018.

The Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a fundraising organization for President Donald Trump, was second during the period with spending of US$3.1 million.

Also among the top spenders is the oil company Exxon Mobil, which has spent nearly $2 million on ads on Facebook since May.

Facebook is making good on its pledge to introduce greater transparency to the political ads bought within its walls, releasing the first of its regular "ad archive" reports which details the biggest political ad spenders in the US.

Another top spender was the "Vote No on 8" committee, which opposed a California ballot measure that would cap the profits of dialysis clinics, and is backed by major dialysis companies like DaVita, Kaiser Health News reported.

Facebook releases routine reports exposing people behind U.S. political ads on its platform, the company revealed one of its promise on Tuesday.

"Make your plan to vote, but please give thought to encouraging others to vote, too", one ad seen by at least hundreds of thousands Facebook accounts said. Since May, more than 100,000 ads have been run on Trump's page, according to the company.

While the sums involved may seem large Facebook's ad revenue as a whole stands at $50bn a year, dwarfing the political contributions.
