Gov. Peter Shumlin over the past two weeks has increased what was already a substantial financial advantage over Republican challenger Scott Milne.
Shumlin collected more than $31,700, spent only $767, and now sits on $1.16 million with only about nine weeks until Election Day, according to a disclosure filed with the secretary of state Tuesday.
Milne, meanwhile, has raised $9,950 since Aug. 15, spent $33,400, and is sitting on about $16,000. The positive balance in Milne’s campaign is thanks only to the $25,000 he loaned his campaign last Friday.
