Republican Alex X. Mooney poured close to $400,000 into his unsuccessful run for another state Senate term, according to 2010 campaign finance reports reviewed by The Herald-Mail. In his bid for a fourth term, Mooney lost to Democrat Ronald N. Young, but outspent him nearly 7-to-1 — about $385,000 to $57,000. Those totals are based on expenditures detailed in four state campaign finance reports that candidates and political organizations had to file during 2010.   Those reports cover the bulk of 2010 — minus the first two weeks, which are folded into an annual recap of 2009, and the last six weeks, which will be part of a 2011 annual report due later this month.
