RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A closely contested congressional race has spent almost $1.7 million more on political advertisements in Virginia than the presidential campaign.
More than $11 million has been spent on ads for the Congressional 7th District race.
Rep. Abigail Spanberger, the incumbent Democrat, faces challenger Nick Freitas, a Republican state delegate.
The district includes Culpeper, Chesterfield, Henrico and Nottoway counties.
Meanwhile, more than $9 million has been spent in Virginia this year on ads for the presidential election between Republican President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden.
