Mitt Romney's campaign gave approximately $90,000 to the Red Cross in late November, according to Federal Election Commission filings, The Hill reported on Friday.

The donation, not made public until Sunday, came weeks after Hurricane Sandy and Romney's presidential election defeat.

The late October superstorm hit the Northeast in the days preceding Election Day, prompting some conservative pundits to pinpoint the destructive storm as a potential reason for the Republican's loss. Romney adviser Stuart Stevens stopped short of blaming Sandy for the former Massachusetts governor's defeat, but told The Huffington Post in December that he "never had a good feeling" about the election post-Sandy.

While Hurricane Sandy pulled both Romney and President Barack Obama away from their campaign efforts, it also brought their climate change stances and natural disaster responses to the spotlight. Though Romney altered his campaign schedule, turning rallies into relief efforts, his response to the storm was still scrutinized.

Year-end filing reports also showed that the Romney campaign, consisting of Romney for President and Romney Victory doled out major funds in the final weeks of 2012, spending $27 million from Nov. 27 through Dec. 31. As The Huffington Post's Paul Blumenthal reported, nearly 40 percent of those funds went to companies belonging to Romney aides.

Romney gave $4.75 million to a company set up by campaign finance chairman Spencer Zwick. Another $3.4 million went to a consulting firm run by adviser Zac Moffatt. Stephen Meyer's Massachusetts-based fundraising company received $1.4 million.
