How much money have the candidates in Chapel Hill-Carrboro races spent?

As the Nov. 5 elections approach, candidates have been campaigning hard, going to events on UNC's campus, in churches and other community spaces. Besides what a candidate believes and advocates, there is one other thing the public wonders: how much did their campaign cost and raise? The numbers vary widely across the Chapel Hill-Carrboro races, and they've changed a lot since last year. “Some state and local campaigns don't cost a lot,” Suzanne Globetti, a teaching associate professor of political science at UNC, said. “Others, especially those that rely on television for campaign advertising, end up spending quite a lot.”
