Billionaire Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg spent more than $77 million to get reelected in New York, breaking the $74-million record he set in 2001 during his first try at politics, according to campaign finance reports.

The spending amounts to more than $103 per vote.

Bloomberg was elected in a landslide Nov. 8 over Democrat Fernando Ferrer, who had trouble raising money and spent more than $9 million in the race.
