ATLANTA (AP) — Disclosure reports show a political fund tied to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has raised roughly $786,000. The Real PAC of Georgia largely raised the funds from organizations and political action committees that do business with the state or have a financial interest in legislation. Since Real PAC is a political action committee, companies, lobbyists and others can give it donations worth up to $50,000, well beyond the contribution limits for Deal's official re-election campaign. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/148Dx94 ) reports that among the donors was a company trying to become the administrator of a health insurance program for state workers, Anheuser-Busch and car title loan purveyor Titlemax. Real PAC was started by Deal supporters. The disclosure report filed Friday was its first since early 2012. ___ Information from: The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, http://www.ajc.com
