Ramaro Spent $48,000 of Her Own Money

Issue: Judicial campaign expensive: Amaro outspent winner Mitchell in 1st District primary race/Taryn Brodwater, Spokesman-Review

More Info: Attorney Rami Amaro spent $57,216, including nearly $48,000 of her own money, on her failed attempt to unseat 1st District Judge John T. Mitchell in last month's primary election. Mitchell spent just more than $50,000, including about $11,000 of his money. He won with 65 percent of the vote.

DFO: Ouch!

Question: Can you think of better uses for $48,000?
