Cleveland RNC Convention still owes money but Buckeye businesses more generous to convention than Florida's



Interesting nugget from the Center for Responsive Politics, looking at the fundraising of this year's Republican National Convention in Cleveland compared to 2012 in Tampa. Only one individual gave at least $1-million to the Cleveland RNC, compared to six for Tampa's in 2012.

....This year, there’s much more home-state pride: Buckeye State organizations and local government itself gave about $37 million this year, compared to just $11 million from Florida entities in 2012....
