Mega Millions for a Governor's Seat

Meg Whitman, eBay’s former CEO, is running for Governor of California. So far, she’s spent $70 million of her own money on her campaign. And she’s willing to spend up to $150 million to win the seat. Her biggest opponent has only spent $30 million (so far).

California’s having all kinds of budget problems. Teachers are getting laid off. Police are getting laid off. Prisoners are getting released early. People are paying for 9-1-1 services. That $100-$150 million could make a huge dent in those problems.

Our question to you: should there be limits on the amount of his/her own money a candidate can spend on a political campaign?

Post your comments here.

Kyra will read some of them on the air during the 10am ET hour of Newsroom.
