Ahead of Tuesday's primary runoff in the Republican lieutenant governor's race, it looks like Dan Forest is far outspending rival Tony Gurley. Neither candidate had much in the tank for the final days of the campaign.
Forest's campaign reported spending about $516,000 through June 30 and raised about $519,000, leaving about $2,600 on hand.
Gurley's campaign spent about $332,000 and received about $337,000 with about $5,000 left in the bank, campaign finance reports show.
Gurley is largely self-financing the campaign, chipping in $350,000 of his own money. He's likely to add more personal cash in the final days. Forest, too, is dipping into his bank account, loaning the campaign $22,000 so far.
Both appear to have outstanding debts to their political consultants.
