Mitt Romney Contributes To Paul Ryan Reelection Campaign

Posted: Updated:

Mitt Romney has donated the maximum $5,200 to the 2014 reelection campaign of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), his former vice presidential running mate.

According to Bloomberg News, Ryan's campaign reported the June 3 contribution in a filing on Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission.

Ryan's $1.1 million haul for the second quarter of this year was also aided by donations from other members of Romney's presidential team. Former campaign manager Beth Myers and onetime finance director Spencer Zwick each gave $2,500.

Wisconsin law allowed Ryan to run for reelection in his House district while simultaneously appearing on the ballot for vice president. Although he lost the big prize, he easily held on to his congressional seat.

Ryan ended the second quarter of 2013 with $2.2 million in the bank. In March, Democrat Rob Zerban -- who lost to Ryan in 2012 -- announced he was looking into a rematch.
