Kevin Drum has noted that Hillary spent 36 million dollars, by far the most of anyone running for Senate in this cycle. I didn't believe that; while I heard endlessly about Menendez and Kean, I heard nothing about her. It seems to me the only way to amass numbers like that is with big media buys inexpensive markets.
But here's the FEC summary from the second week of October:
S0NY00188 CLINTON, HILLARY RODHAM Senate
New York SEN Democratic Party Incumbent
Total Receipts: $37,853,894
Transfers From Authorized Committees: $58,467
Individual Contributions: $35,622,256
Non-Party (e.g. PACs) or Other Committees: $1,439,697
Contributions from Party Committees $8,925
Candidate Contribution: $0
Candidate Loans: $0
Other Loans: $0
Total Disbursements: $29,450,302
Transfers to Authorized Committees: $0
Individual Refunds: $726,040
Non-Party (e.g. PACs) or Other Refunds: $23,500
Candidate Loan Repayments: $0
Other Loan Repayments: $0
So it looks like she really did spend that much money. Where did she spend it? I can't find a detailed report on the FEC page. Can someone tell me where this data can be found?
