corzine with wesibergNew Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine spent $25.3 million of his own money on his unsuccessful re-election bid. A state Election Law Enforcement Commission report released today shows the recent campaign cost Corzine more $27 million. Republican Chris Christie won even though he spent far less, $11.4 million. Nearly all his expenditures came under the limit of $10.9 million for candidates who accept public financing. The dats show Corzine spent $131 million during his political career on his own¬†campaigns. That’s¬†enough to pay property taxes for everyone in Corzine’s hometown of Hoboken and still have some money left over.

Corzine ran successfully for U.S. Senate in 2000 and governor in 2005. AP
