West Virginia's race for governor pitting Democratic billionaire Jim Justice against Republican state Senate President Bill Cole has cost about $8.1 million, at least so far.

Finance disclosures show Justice has spent $3.5 million through late September, loaning his gubernatorial campaign $2.6 million. Cole so far has spent $2.1 million with the Republican Governors Association aiding Cole with $1.6 million in ads. The Democratic Governors Association has bought $912,800 in ads to support Justice.

The attorney general's race has racked up a big $5.2 million tab, with the Republican Attorney Generals Association investing $3.4 million in ads supporting Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.

Morrisey's challenger, Democratic state Delegate Doug Reynolds, has put $1.8 million of his own money into the race.
