Trump and Clinton campaigns made heavy use of Uber

It turns out the Clinton and Trump campaigns don't like hailing cabs either.

Hamilton Place Strategies combed through the election campaign spending data and found that the two presidential campaigns used Uber more than three times as much as traditional taxis. Uber accounted for more than 3/4 of ride expenses under $100, compared to 22.9 percent for taxis and just 1.6 percent for Lyft.

Both campaigns also dabbled with Home Away and AirBnB, but traditional hotels still accounted for 99 percent of lodging expenses.
