Bob Hugin raised more than three times as much as U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez and outspent the incumbent by a similar margin.
According to post-general reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, Hugin raised $39,138,199, the vast majority of which — $36 million — came from his own pocket. Hugin spent $37,800,226 during the campaign.
That amounts to $27.85 for each of his 1,375,335 votes.
Menendez reported raising $12,468,212 and spending $14,081,956 over the course of the election. His 1,711,654 votes cost $8.23 each.
Those spending figures do not include independent expenditures made for or against either candidate, nor do they include spending made by candidates’ political action committees.
Menendez reported cash-on-hand of $288,903, while Hugin had $546,468 left over in his campaign account.
