ALAMEDA, Calif. — California Treasurer Bill Lockyer has spent more money this year trying to elect his wife to a new job than he has spent on his own re-election campaign.

In the first six months of 2010, the Lockyer for Treasurer 2010 committee contributed $530,000 to wife Nadia Lockyer’s campaign for a seat on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, out of $1.04 million spent overall, according to campaign finance reports filed with the secretary of state.
