Uber and Lyft have spent more than $8 million in support of Austin’s Prop 1 through the Ridesharing Works for Austin PAC, according to campaign finance reports filed Friday afternoon.

In four months, the transportation companies have spent almost as much as Ken Paxton spent on his entire 2014 campaign for attorney general, and more than Glenn Hegar, Sid Miller and George P. Bush spent on their 2014 statewide campaigns combined. For the statewide candidates, we are counting all expenditures made from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2014. The transportation companies’ spending is from January 1 through April 29 of this year.
