JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill spent more than $19 million on her re-election campaign but hasn’t finished paying all the bills.

A summary of the Democratic senator’s finances released Friday shows she had less than $8,800 in her campaign account as of Nov. 26.

McCaskill defeated Republican congressman Todd Akin last month after waging a heavy TV advertising campaign.

Her finance report shows she spent nearly $19.3 million during the campaign and has a debt of about $238,000

Campaign manager Adrianne Marsh says McCaskill has some outstanding invoices for ad production.

Akin also has been seeking donations to repay campaign debt. But it’s not clear how much Akin still owes, because his campaign has declined to release a summary of his post-election finance report.
