Campaign Budget

Campaign expense reports are due in one week – on October 12.  My plan is to close down my campaign website after Election Day.  I plan to transfer some of the website content to the blog.  I thought a good place to start would be the campaign budget information.

I also want to take this opportunity to say thanks to all the people who contributed to help out with campaign costs.  This is especially generous since I ended up not having opposition.
