Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman continued her record-shattering spending streak this spring, burning through $33.8 million in about two months, according to a campaign finance statement filed Thursday.
That amount brings the billionaire candidate’s spending total to more than $80 million, with $68 million of it coming from her own personal wealth.

The former chief executive officer of online auction firm eBay has said she’s prepared to spend as much as $150 million of her own wealth on her campaign.

Whitman had $3.8 million in cash on hand as of May 22.
