The $46.6 million that Linda McMahon spent as of her mid-October report led to her spending roughly $100 for the 500,000 votes she received in Tuesday's election, according to the Hartford Courant. By the time her final contribution numbers are revealed, it is expected that she will have spent more than $100 per each vote she received.

The story also notes that 32 candidates spent at least $1 million of their personal wealth on while running for Congress, yet only four of those people were elected. To read the full article, visit

Powell's POV: It's worth noting that Richard Blumenthal, who defeated Linda on Tueday, was one of the candidates who spent over $1 million of his own money. While Linda ranked first in self-funders, Blumenthal ranked No. 11 of this year's congressional candidates. Meg Whitman spent $160 million on her campaign for govenror in California, but she scored 3.1 million votes, so she spent less per voter than Linda did. An interesting story with somewhat surprising results for the big spending candidates.
