Big spender

    Tea Party candidate Christine O’Donnell reports she spent $6.1 million for her campaing against Democrat Chris Coons.

    The republican candidate raised more than $7 million, most of which came in over the course of a two-month period after O’Donnell defeated Mike Castle in the Sept. 15 GOP primary, the Associated Press reports. The $1 million she had as of Nov. 22 is reportedly still being used to pay off campaign expenses.
