More than 2,000 businesses and people in more than 30 states got a piece of the action in Meg Whitman’s $177 million campaign for California governor, final reports show.

Whitman’s effort set the record for the most expensive statewide campaign ever. End-of-year reports released last week show expenses ranging from $13.6 million netted by the Virginia firm that bought Whitman’s radio and TV time, to $67 for a Louisiana man after travel expenses.
