Bill McCollum, who is expected to announce his candidacy for Governor in Orlando on Monday morning, has already been raking in soft money donations to his committee of continuous existence (CCE), the Bill Fund. Interestingly, many of his latest contributions are coming from the banking investment or real estate industry. He also has received a contribution from the Fanjul family (of big sugar fame). Even more interesting though, is his CCE’s payout of $10,000 to the Republican Party of Florida on April 14th. This comes on top of a $25,000 donation McCollum’s CCE previously sent to the RPOF. I wonder what benefits that level of contribution gets you?
