MIAMI (CBSMiami/NSF) — Florida Governor Rick Scott’s committee got a boost from ‘the happiest place on earth.’
His “Let’s Get to Work” political committee raised only $30,500 in cash during June but received more than $250,000 in in-kind contributions from Walt Disney World Parks and Resorts, according to a finance report posted on the state Division of Elections website.
A brief description of the $252,503 in in-kind contributions indicates they went for such things as entertainment, travel, food and beverages.
The contributions are dated June 2nd, which coincides with Scott hosting an “economic growth summit” at Disney that drew Republican presidential candidates.
Let’s Get to Work also reported spending $97,413 during June, with the biggest chunk, $30,000, going to Maryland-based On Message, Inc., for political consulting and advertising.
