He outspent Bass by very wide margins, largely using his own money (see below).
What the hell is Rick Caruso doing spending over $100M!! to defeat Karen Bass? He put in $101,477,500 of his own money along with $3.4M from a group opposing Bass compared to Bass's roughly $18M raise.
So many better things he could have done with that money, if in fact, people really think that he's got ideas that will actively make the city better.
Caruso outspent Bass 5 to 1.
Caruso spent $400 per vote for the 252,476 votes he got (as of 2022-11-09 9:24 AM).
