Democratic gubernatorial challenger Mark Taylor raised more campaign cash than Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue in the last full month of the campaign for governor. But Perdue continues to hold a significant lead in available money heading into the final days of the election, according to new campaign disclosure reports.
Perdue spent a whopping $5.4 million in October, the bulk of it to blanket the state’s airwaves with television ads. Taylor spent just $1.7 million for the monthlong reporting period that ended Oct. 25.
The reports show that lackluster poll numbers didn’t prevent Taylor from hustling to fill his campaign coffers in October, pulling in $723,546. Perdue raised $628,343 for the same period.
But Perdue has $1.77 million cash on hand while Taylor has just $214,774.
But, how much does Mark have in the account designated for a runoff. Heh.
