Charlie WIlson spent $581K of his own money for failed congressional campaign

Staff report

Ex-U.S. Rep. Charlie Wilson spent $581,091.27 of his own money in a failed attempt to win the 6th Congressional District race.

That amount is 39.3 percent of the $1,477,302.20 Wilson, a Democrat from St. Clairsville, raised for his campaign.

Wilson had $9,145.99 in his campaign account as of Nov. 26, according to campaign finance information filed with the Federal Election Commission.

As of that same date, Wilson’s campaign owed $574,558.75 to the failed candidate. That includes $191,650 his campaign still owes him from the $250,000 he loaned it in 2006 from that first and successful run for the U.S. House.

After two terms in Congress, Wilson lost in 2010 to Republican Bill Johnson.
