Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has run an unusually cheap campaign in part by not paying at least 10 top staffers, consultants and advisers, some of whom are no longer with the campaign. Those who have so far not been paid  include recently departed campaign manager Paul Manafort, California state director Tim Clark, communications director Michael Caputo and a pair of senior aides who left the campaign in June to immediately go to work for a Trump Super PAC. Trump and his allies have touted his campaign's frugality, saying it's evidence of his management skills. His campaign's spending has totaled $89.5 million so far, about a third of what Hillary Clinton's campaign has spent.
