Gov. Scott Contributes $14 Million To His Own Upcoming Senate Campaign

Reports say Florida Gov. Rick Scott has spent nearly $14 million of his own money on his campaign for Florida U.S. Senator. 

The campaign finance report Scott submitted this week shows Scott contributed $13.5 million in cash and $500,000 for using his personal jet for campaign travel.

The report shows nearly $8 million was raised in other contributions since Scott entered the race in April. 

However, that doesn't include $3.2 million raised by Rick Scott Victory Fund, a political committee aligned with Scott.

The campaign has spent about $18 million, much of it on television ads criticizing current Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson.

Scott is looking to unseat the three-term Democratic U.S. Senator. 

In the 2010 governor's race, which Scott won, he spent about $73 million of his family's money and about another $13 million on his re-election.
