Congressional campaign finance

For a 45-day election, the race for the 20th CD is certainly costing a lot. Check out my story in tomorrow's paper for the full details, but thus far, the political costs of this race are exceeding $2 million, including about $1.3 spent so far by the candidates.

The rest of the funds being spent by national political organizations in DC.

Voters will remember the last time the 20th CD was up for election -- last November -- as the costliest congressional race in the nation, with candidates spending more than $10 million between them.

On election night, shortly after receiving a concession call from Treadwell, Gillibrand said she regretted the cost needed to get the message out to voters.

The question this time around might very well be, which candidate will spend enough?
