Bill McCollum Has Only $800,000 Left; Rick Scott Has Spent $21 Million
Bill McCollum can't catch a break. He has twice run for senator, both times unsuccessfully. Finally found himself in the Attorney General's chair, and is now running for Governor. He was ahead in the polls, too, until billionaire Rick Scott started attacking him from the right with his big help from his own pocket book. No McCollum's campaign account is down to a pitiful $800,000. Rick Scott meanwhile has already spent $21 million (mostly of his own money) with no signs of stopping.
