Meg Whitman Blows Away Self-Funded Federal Candidates in Cash Comparison

OpenSecrets Blog: Money-in-politics news of the day: Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, former eBay chief executive and the Great Right Hope of California Republicans, has spent more of her own money on a political race than anyone in U.S. history, including billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who spent $108 million on his reelection efforts last year.
What you probably don't know: Whitman's self-financed spending total -- $119 million and counting -- utterly dwarfs that of any self-funded candidate who's competed at the federal level, running either for a congressional seat or the presidency, a Center for Responsive Politics study indicates.
