Billy Long raises $4,720 in five-week period, spends $5,307 on meals
That total was more than the $4,720 Long received in contributions during that same period, according to the report.
The report listed 14 meals, 13 of them coming in December, with the biggest amounts being $3,000 at the Prime Rib in Washington, D. C. on December 9 and $1,901.01 at the Flame in Sprngfield on December 22.
The "at least" in the first paragraph is thrown in because Long also reported making a $17,527.08 expenditure to ELAN Financial Services for a credit card payment on New Year's Eve, with no breakdown on how the money was spent.
During the five-week period, the fiscal conservative spent $196,120.85, according to the report.
Long has $563,064.56 in his campaign account.
