HARTFORD, Conn. – Another day, another million dollars in PAC money flows into state campaign coffers. Groups supporting Republicans and Democrats spent just over $1 million dollars last week as election season entered its final days.

According to financial disclosure forms filed with the state election regulators Tuesday $465,000 was spent in support of Democrats and $640,000 on Republicans last week. This brings the state to a total of $16.4 million in outsider money spent on state elections.

Opposing sides of the gun control debate each made large contributions. Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s pro-gun control PAC plans to spend $1.7 million on the race. To date it has spent $18,000 on ads opposing Tom Foley.

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund spent $43,000 on mailers this week as well.
