RNC, DNC Spent More Than $30 Million In October

The Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee combined to spend $30 million in October, the last full month before some key off-year elections on Nov. 3.

According to campaign finance reports filed Friday, the RNC spent $16.7 million last month. It transferred $2.5 million to its state affiliate in Virginia, where Bob McDonnell (R) decisively won the gubernatorial election, Republicans also won races for lieutenant governor and attorney general and also increased their majority in the state House of Delegates.

The RNC gave $630,000 to the Republican Governors Association, which helped the party increase its ranks of governors from 22 to 24 with victories in Virginia and New Jersey, and $500,000 to its state affiliate in Pennsylvania, where the Republicans won a state Supreme Court election.
