She collectively spent about $53,000 on salaries for 14 people, a more typical size for a congressional campaign. Advertising was Handel's biggest expense, at roughly $1.3 million (including $28,000 for yard signs). Handel also spent roughly $374,000 on polling and consultants.
Overall, Ossoff's campaign burned through its money a lot quicker than Handel's did. The Democrat spent all of the dough he raised during the runoff and more, and kicked off the final three weeks of the race with $1.1 million in the bank. Handel began June with $1.4 million on hand.
The spending by both campaigns, of course, represents of fraction of the more than $40 million that's been spent so far on this behemoth of a race. Both campaigns have been buoyed by a raft of money from super PACs and their respective political parties. We expect to see even more in the days ahead.
