Vermont Governor Spends $320k to Win Re-election
New campaign finance reports show that Vermont Republican gubernatorial challenger Randy Brock spent more than $806,000 in his unsuccessful attempt to unseat Democratic Governor Peter Shumlin.
In campaign finance reports filed Thursday, Brock said he spent $806,647, which included a $300,000 loan he made to his campaign.
Shumlin's finance report says he spent $320,761 and he still has $932,975 on hand.
Thursday was a deadline for candidates to file their post-election campaign finance reports with the Secretary of State's office.
The reports should give a final tally on how much was spent during the election cycle.
The Vermonters First political action committee spent $952,435 to support conservative candidates. Most of the statewide candidates supported by the PAC lost their elections.
