Ryan offers refunds to contributors

Former Republican Senate candidate Jack Ryan is offering refunds to donors following last week's collapse of his campaign amid embarrassing sex allegations.

Ryan had raised about $1.5 million since winning the Republican nomination, said Jason Miller, who managed Ryan's campaign. He said donors to the general election fund will be informed of Ryan's decision next week.

The campaign has not released figures on how much has already been spent, but Miller said Ryan will spend his own money for any bills and staff salaries that are not covered. ...

Miller said the campaign expects about half of the donors to request refunds. Campaign communications director Kelli Phiel did not immediately return calls Wednesday about the campaign's finances. -- Former GOP Senate Candidate Ryan Offers Donor Refunds (AP via washingtonpost.com)
