The committee for the Jan. 4, 2011, inauguration of Florida Gov.-elect Rick Scott has raised $1,137,500, mostly from corporations and wealthy individuals donating the maximum $25,000.

U.S. Sugar Corp donated $25,000, and Florida Crystals and three companies listed to the same office donated $100,000 in total.

Other $25,000 donors, such as Green Solar Transportation, LLC, and Blue Cross Blue Shield, also donated heavily to Rick Scott’s campaign 527, Let’s Get to Work.
