Former eBay CEO Meg Whitman has given herself a big financial boost in her run for governor.

Whitman has contributed $19 million to her own campaign. On top of that, she's raised a total of $10.2 million since she launched her run last February.

Her campaign says those numbers far outpace those of her republican rivals.
