Democrat Doug Jones has spent 10 times as much as his opponent in the race for Alabama's open U.S. Senate seat, embattled Republican Roy Moore, NBC News reported.

The Jones campaign has dropped more than $5.6 million on television and radio ads in the general election, dwarfing the roughly $600,000 that Moore's team has spent, according to ad-tracking group Advertising Analytics LLC. Outside groups have backed the pair at a similar ratio.
