HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Gov. Ned Lamont spent about $15 million of his own money to win the Democratic nomination and ultimately the 2018 general election.

End-of the-year state records show Lamont's campaign spent a total of $15.8 million.

The successful businessman, who mostly self-funded previous bids for governor and U.S. Senate, contributed about $15 million while the remaining roughly $800,000 came from donors.

Records also indicate Lamont spent more of his own money than his Republican rival, businessman Bob Stefanowski. The GOP contender spent $2.3 million to win a five-way primary and about $1 million on the general election.

Overall, Stefanowski's campaign spent $6.5 million on the primary and election. The Republican also benefited from $7.4 million in outside spending by the Republican Governors Association.

Lamont is the founder of a cable television company that provided satellite and telecommunications services to colleges.
