Rep. Andy Kim (D-Bordentown) continued to massively outspend Republican challenger David Richter in the final weeks of the election, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Nearly half of Richter’s cash, $700,000, came from his own pocket.
Kim continued to spend voluminously in the last weeks, disbursing $793,828 as the election neared. His total spending for the cycle was about $6.9 million. Richter, meanwhile, spent $188,881 in the final days and $1.4 million over the course of the race.
The incumbent finished the contest with $599,845 banked, while Richter had $11,264.68.
