So it looks to me like Ron Barber actually spent about $800K, so far. Jesse Kelly spent about $735K. That's for everything through the primaries up to about two weeks before the election, so they probably spent a bit more.
The total candidate committee expenditures for the CD 8 Special: less than $2 million.
Total independent expenditures for the CD 8 Special: about $2.25 million.
So, whose campaign was it, really?
