Meg Whitman, the Republican gubernatorial candidate in California, is the People’s Candidate. Meg Whitman knows this in her heart, and that is why Meg Whitman donated an ass-ton of money to herself, again:
With her announcement Tuesday that she had contributed another $15 million of her personal fortune to her quest to defeat Attorney General Jerry Brown, Ms. Whitman became the leading self-financing political candidate in American history with a total of $119 million donated to her own campaign.
She surged past New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who previously held the personal financing record with the $109.2 million he spent while seeking his third term as Hizzoner last year. The spending averaged out to about $186 per vote and bested the previous title of $85 million — also held by Mr. Bloomberg, from his 2005 campaign.
