Campaign Finance Report Puts Foley Spending at $6.3 Million

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ New campaign finance reports show Republican Tom Foley pumped $1.3 million of his own money into his bid for governor in September, but ended the month with less than $200,000 in his campaign account.

Documents filed with the State Elections Enforcement Commission this week also show that the Greenwich businessman has raised a total of $6.5 million for his campaign, which includes $5.3 million of his own money, and spent $6.3 million.

Foley’s chief rival, Democratic former Stamford Mayor Dan Malloy, reported this week that he has about $4.5 million left in his campaign coffers. Malloy’s campaign has received $6 million from the state’s public campaign funding program.

Foley, Malloy and independent candidate Tom Marsh are campaigning to succeed Republican Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
