Heading into Super Tuesday, former Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota announced that they’d exit the Democratic presidential race.

As 14 states (plus American Samoa) and roughly 40% of U.S. voters come up for grabs on Tuesday, a just-released analysis by WalletHub takes a look at how the candidates manage their own money.
