With 2020 drawing near, the Trump campaign’s spending at its go-to law firm, Jones Day, rose sharply in the three months ending Sept. 30, climbing to about $1.3 million. The amount eclipsed the more than $525,000 the firm received in the previous six months, according to new disclosures filed late Monday with the Federal Election Commission.

The Jones Day billing accounted for nearly all of the campaign’s more than $1.5 million in expenditures categorized as “legal consulting” in the finance disclosure for the third quarter of 2018.
