HARTFORD, CT — Not including the cost of the transition, Gov. Ned Lamont spent about $15.8 million of his own money on his successful race for governor.

Lamont’s raised more than $800,000 in donations and has about $710,500 in outstanding expenses, which will be converted to a contribution. 

It means he spent about $22.77 per vote.

His Republican opponent, Bob Stefanowski, loaned his campaign $2.85 million and raised about $3.6 million bringing his total spending on the campaign to about $6.5 million. The Republican Governors Association also spent $7.5 million on the race.

There were no outside groups spending money on behalf of Lamont.

Lamont and Stefanowski both opted not to use the public campaign financing program.
