Two major Presidential campaigns owe the city of Tucson a lot of money.
 
Between them Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's campaigns owe the city more than $125,000 for police protection for their campaign stops in March.
 
The Trump campaign used more police so it has the bigger bill for police overtime.
 
The Tucson City Manager's office says the Trump campaign owes $81,837.
 
Sanders campaign ran up a bill for police protection that totals $44,013.
 
Former President Bill Clinton appeared at a smaller event in support of his wife.  It used 23 officers for $7,312. 
 
The Sanders and Trump campaigns ran up bills at the Tucson Convention Center for hall rental and services like catering and audio-visual work.  Those bills are paid because the TCC required a credit card up front.
