O'Donnell Spends Record $6.1 Million in Del. Race

Friday, 03 Dec 2010 06:52 PM

 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Delaware Republican Christine O'Donnell set a state record by spending more than $6.1 million in her losing Senate campaign against Democrat Chris Coons.

Campaign finance data going back to the 1980s compiled by CQ MoneyLine show the next highest tally came in the 2008 cycle when former Sen. Joe Biden, now the vice president, spent $4.9 million.

Delaware elections commissioner Elaine Manlove says she is confident no one has spent more in the state's history.

O'Donnell's fundraising — roughly double Coons' — is remarkable for a longshot candidate who badly trailed throughout the campaign. The tea party favorite was flooded with contributions after she pulled off a stunning primary upset. Endorsements from Sarah Palin and others also helped.
