RNC Host Committee “met every milestone”

RNC Host Committee CEO Ken Jones says his group has kept pace with the demands placed on it by the convention schedule. But he refused to go into any more detail about the group’s progress toward its goal of raising $50 million.
“We’ve met every milestone we had to meet,” Jones told a press conference Tuesday morning at Tropicana Field. “We did successfully enough in fundraising that the convention will happen.”
Jones said the full report of the committee’s fundraising will be filed with the Federal Elections Commission in mid-October.
The committee “probably will not” continue to raise money after the convention ends Aug. 30, Jones said.
