Cheap Campaign

For one Congressional candidate, his campaign spending is relatively a drop in the bucket.

Representative Joel Hefley, of the 5th Congressional district in Colorado Springs, is spending a paltry 76 thousand dollars compared to spending by other candidates.

Without any real challengers, the 9-term Congressional veteran is using his own money for campaign supplies.

Through the end of last month, House candidates raised an average of over $712 thousand.
