The Republican candidates seeking to challenge Trump and Cruz at the top of the field were in varying degrees of financial distress at the end of 2015, fundraising reports filed Sunday night show, with Rubio in the best position to move forward.With voting beginning Monday in Iowa, and continuing next week in New Hampshire, Rubio, Bush, Kasich and Christie were running low on time – as well as money – in their efforts to rise. In that state, where voters weigh in Feb. 9, there are two others who also have gone all-in: Kasich, the Ohio governor, and Christie, the New Jersey governor.Kasich and Christie each raised about $3 million in between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 . Kasich closed out the year with about $2.5 million in cash, and Christie with just over $1 million.That small-donor rate is far better than those of Rubio, Bush, Kasich and Christie.In November, he gave $150,000 to Conservative Solutions PAC, which supports Rubio. His support swung back to Christie in December, though, when he gave Christie's super PAC another $250,000 .Hedge fund manager Seth Klarman also split his money between super PACs for Christie and Rubio.
