Meg Whitman Charges Media $2K For a Day of Travel With Campaign

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that there is a high price tag for press traveling with gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman in the final days of the campaign:

Whitman is charging the media a whopping $1,350 for one day, and an astronomical $2,050 for another — hotels not included. And so far, no details of what itinerary is planned, with a week to go.

Whitman campaign spokeswoman Sarah Pompei, in an email to reporters, gave those figures out with the observation that “we have worked to keep the cost for travel during the day as low as possible.”

We’re sure Meg’s doing her best, but the Jerry Brown campaign provides a much better bargain for tag-along reporters. $700 a day for hotels, meals, and transportation – and maybe even some interviews.

Hat tip Romenesko.
