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 yesterday, Brock says that total includes a $300,000 loan he made to his campaign.
Shumlin’s finance report says he spent more than $320,000 and he still has more than $932,000 on hand.
Yesterday 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 more than $952,000 to support conservative candidates.
Most of the statewide candidates supported by the PAC lost their elections.
