*Gubernatorial Total Includes spending to build name recognition before the official primary period.
**Totals $2‚160‚922 if it included $1‚433‚177 spent on Third District Senate race during the primary months. However‚ since neither the Democratic and Republican Third District Senate candidate had a primary opponent‚ they essentially were engaged in one long general election. So the $1‚433‚177 is included in the general election legislative independent spending total.
