Meg Whitman spent $150 million of her own money to get her one vote. She would not even be this voting if it was not for her $150 million.

Meg Whitman received 3,300,000 votes or 41.5% for Republican candidate for Governor. Any Republican candidate in California without spending even one-dollar of his or her own money would have probably garnered more than 41.5% of votes in this election.

It just proves that she ran for her own one vote. So, it is wrong to say she spends $47 (or whatever) per vote, the correct answer is: she spends $150 million (or whatever exact amount) for her one vote.

She may be “tough as nail” for Pete Wilson but for Californians, she may be the worst per $ candidate in the US election history.
