Tomblin outspent before close W.Va. governor win

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin was
slightly outspent by his GOP opponent before his narrow win in last
month's gubernatorial special election.
Reports filed Wednesday show Republican Bill Maloney spent $2.4
million during the general election season. That amount includes $1
million during the race's final phase.
Tomblin's spending during those final weeks equaled $684,000.
The Democrat spent a total of $2.2 million following the May
primary.
The new reports also show that Maloney devoted more than $2.4
million from his personal wealth toward his campaign. That amounts
to nearly three-fourths of all his campaign spending, including
during the primary phase.
Maloney loaned his campaign $650,000 during the final filing
period. He raised just $57,000 during that time from contributors,
compared to nearly $396,000 attracted by Tomblin.
