Meg Whitman has pumped an additional $20 million of her own money into her California gubernatorial campaign, according to a new filing this week. The former eBay CEO has now contributed $91 million of her own money to the campaign, $71 million of which came during the primary.
Whitman beat state Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner in the June 8 Republican primary. Now she faces former California Attorney General (and former Governor) Jerry Brown in the general election.
The TPM Poll Average shows Brown leading Whitman 45.2% to 41.0%.
