Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) spent roughly $64 million of his own money on his Senate campaign to unseat Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), according to campaign expenditure filings with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

The senator-elect spent $63.6 million total on the campaign through a series of donations from his personal account. Prior to running for governor, Scott worked as a venture capitalist and as a health care executive.

The article goes on to state the following:

Scott’s personal contribution to his campaign accounted for roughly three-quarters of his entire fundraising haul of $84.7 million, according to FEC records.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that Scott contributed more than $12 million to his campaign in the closing weeks of his contest with Nelson. Scott’s overall spending fell just short of the $70 million he poured into his gubernatorial campaign in 2010, the newspaper reported.

  1. A craven desire for power drives most of these egomaniacs (aka politicians and Soros-types) and many are willing to sell out our country along with their souls in order to achieve or maintain it.

  2. That is because RINO Ryan would not spend any of “his” money that he raised for the Republican party on Republicans! Ryan is a POS!
