Once Dust Settles, Brown Tops Whitman in Fundraising...For Now

If tracking polls are correct--and they don't have to be very accurate with a 25 percent spread--Meg Whitman will be the Republican nominee for California governor. Throw in the likely Democratic nominee, Jerry Brown and voters will have a choice between a wealthy candidate and another with fundraising resources to match, but according to California Watch, Brown will start with a significant money advantage, that is, until Whitman writes herself another large check.

Whitman spent $61,068,953.20 in the primary leaving her $3,774,640.90. Brown, in contrast, has spent only $403,684.60, leaving an ending balance of $20,633,704.93. To put it into perspective, Alameda County Supervisor candidate Nadia Lockyer will have spent more money to advance to a likely November runoff than Brown needed to win the Democratic nomination for governor.
