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.
