TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The last delegate left town more than two years ago, but the Tampa Bay Host Committee for the 2012 Republican National Convention did not officially, go out of business until recently.

The Tampa Bay Times reports (https://bit.ly/1A1cmM9) on New Year’s Eve, the nonprofit committee filed its final report with the Federal Elections Commission saying it had given away all the money it had left over after the convention. The last check was cut on Dec. 22 for $255.99 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which had previously received $5,000.

To stage the convention, the local host committee raised about $55.3 million - $44.9 million in cash and $10.4 million in donated goods or services. Floridians and companies or groups based in the state contributed about 27 percent of the total.
