Always wondered if the candidates have their own private top notch security or if they're somewhat protected by the secret service already? Like when Trump almost got attacked on stage, his securities didn't seem all that for the money he has

Yes, the U.S. Secret Service does protect Presidential Candidates



Protection, which entails ensuring the safety of current and former national leaders and their families, such as the President, past Presidents, Vice Presidents, presidential candidates, visiting heads of state, and foreign embassies.

The Googles works.




In regard to presidential campaign, the Secret Service is authorized by law (18 United States Code § 3056) to protect: Major presidential and vice presidential candidates and their spouses within 120 days of a general presidential election.

The Secret Service is required by law to provide protection to candidates within 120 days of the general election (that would be sometime in July). Candidates can request protection prior to this point if they feel that it is necessary. Donald Trump and Ben Carson both received Secret Service protection back in November of 2015 (one presume's Dr. Carson's detail is no longer active. Sanders got protection in February. Hillary Clinton has had a Secret Service detail since she was First Lady, although one assumes it has been beefed up since she started to campaign.

Kasich, at least, was having his security provided by the Ohio State Highway Patrol as of at least February 8. I wasn't able to uncover any information about his arrangements now.

My Google-fu also failed to turn up anything about Cruz. Given that Sanders, Carson, and Trump all received protection fairly early in the process, I would assume that Cruz would be granted a detail if he asked for one. Maybe he already has and his campaign has decided not to advertise it.
