The biggest Johnson creditor according to FEC filings is NSON Opinion Research of Salt Lake City, a consulting and polling firm owned by Johnson’s campaign manager Ronald Nielson that also operates under the registered fictitious business name “Political Advisors.” Debts include $46,295.39 for “fundraising commissions” and several hundred thousand dollars for “staff hours” for “advisors.” Further examination of Johnson campaign filings demonstrate the high-level of integration between NSON and the Johnson campaign. Of the roughly $2.5 million spent by Johnson prior to the election, more than $2.3 million was paid to NSON.

Not sure where the money went exactly, but this could mean a good thing, oddly enough. It means that they clearly have not "capitalized" on the good will of the public, at the very least.
But it also doesn't mean success either... Maybe it means integrity, maybe it means it all got burnt on casinos after their joke of a run for office (It was, let's be honest).
I still kind of see this as a good thing, just on an integral level... Because money shouldn't be apart of any politicial campaign.

It would have been nice to get GJ 5% of the vote so the Libertarian Party would have been eligible for matching funds. Although I think they ultimately would have rejected the funds since it contradicts Libertarian principles.
