Rick Scott inaugural haul climbs to $2.5 million

Folks inside Team Scott are starting to refer to Jan. 4 as the "coronation" instead of the inauguration, which is expected to exceed $3 million in costs.

Rick Scott recently broke the $2 million threshold in mostly corporate donations to pay for the party (story here). Now, he's over $2.5 million.

According to contribution reports posted Monday evening, new donors include the Florida Chamber of Commerce's Florida Justice Reform Institute, the Florida Chamber of Commerce's Florida Jobs PAC, Gunster Yoakley & Stewart P.A., Disney, Wal-Mart and Pfizer.
