Spending Record in her Race for
California Governor


Trending today is a story on the Associated Press news wire about California Governor-hopeful, Meg Whitman.

Whitman, the former billionaire CEO of Ebay has exceeded the previous record held by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg contributed $108 million in his bid for a third term of the Big Apple's mayorship, and further he did not allow donations to his campaign funds.
