Raffensperger Releases TV Ad

CANDIDATE CONTRIBUTIONS EXPENDITURES
Barrow (D) $1,382,238.96 $919,112.27
Duval (L) $16,452.96 $14,672.32
Raffensperger (R) $1,890,025.00 $1,737,352.31

It is interesting that this is his first TV ad. In the primaries, Raffensperger seemed to advertise more than everybody else combined.

Maybe that’s when he spent all his money.

That guy at 11 seconds with Barrow looks a lot like Ted Cruz.
