Spitzer Spends $2.5M In NYC Comptroller Race

spitzEliot Spitzer’s campaign spent $2.5 million between July 12 and August 5 in his self-financed bid to become New York City’s next comptroller.

Campaign finance reports released Saturday also show Spitzer’s campaign has received about $3.7 million of his own money since the former governor unexpectedly launched his bid for comptroller on July 7. The records show Spitzer spent a little more than $2 million of the campaign cash on television advertisements alone.

Spitzer resigned as governor amid a scandal in 2008.

His opponent, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, spent about $850,000 in the same period and raised nearly $3.2 million. With public matching funds, he has about $4.6 million of cash on hand.
