Yavapai County businessman Buz Mills reports spending nearly $3.2 million in his campaign for the Republican nomination for governor.
A campaign finance report filed by Mills says he spent $3,193,369 through Monday. He hasn’t yet filed a report detailing his recent fundraising but previous reports indicated his campaign was self-funded.
Meanwhile, Gov. Jan Brewer is asking a federal judge to allow her to supplement her $707,000 of public funding with private contributions.
The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked payment of so-called matching funds to publicly funded candidates outspent by privately funded rivals.
State Treasurer Dean Martin and Apache Junction resident Matthew Jette also are running for the Republican nomination.
