Corzine has spent $121 million running for office

Jon Corzine has now spent $120,960, 969 running for office, not including his personal contributions to other candidates, political parties, and charitable organizations. He spent $63,209,506 on his 2000 United States Senate campaign, $39,920,221 on his 2005 gubernatorial race, and so far, $16,831,242 on his 2009 re-election bid. The good news for Corzine is that he has closed the gap against Republican Christopher Christie, helped at least in part by a 3-1 financial advantage, in a state where Democrats have not lost a statewide election in twelve years. The bad news for Corzine is that despite spending nearly $121 million on his three campaigns, he still can’t break 40% in public opinion polls.

Corzine is second on the all-time self-funder list, behind New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and ahead of presidential candidates Steve Forbes and Ross Perot.
