It would seem so far the money has been well spent his indictment was reduced to one count.

Former Gov. Rick Perry has now spent more than $2 million in state campaign cash fighting the abuse-of-power indictment against him, according to finance records made public Thursday.
In the first half of this year, Perry, now a presidential candidate, tapped his Texas campaign coffers to pay just over $1 million to four law firms for "legal defense," the records show. The bills climb even higher with tens of thousands of dollars paid to a New York firm for what the Perry's campaign described as "legal defense consulting."
His state campaign had already disclosed spending more than $1 million on legal defense during the second half of last year.
