GOP gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott has dropped his first personal investment into the race since winning the Republican nomination, $1.1 million on Sept. 14, according to campaign finance documents.
Scott spent approximately $50 million on his successful primary campaign — about a quarter of his net worth — and had expressed hesitancy to continue self-funding during the general election. But he hasn’t been able to match his opponent, Democrat Alex Sink, in fundraising either — a dilemma which Battle ‘10 examined last week.
The election is only a few weeks away, but there will be a lot of TV ads thrown his way between now and Nov. 2. This first general-election investment proves what Scott has been saying all along: that he’s all in to win this race.
