The Republican Party of Florida collected about $10.27 million from Nov. 4 through Dec. 31, including $1 million in contributions from the state’s two largest electric utilities, according to a newly filed finance report.
The contributions ranged from the closing days of the 2022 election campaign to the days leading up to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Jan. 3 inauguration.
It is unclear from the report how many of the contributions were tied to the inauguration.
