Applicants must promise to furnish $2,000 to
participate after they’re selected, a requirement that tilts the process

Treasurer Kelly Mitchell, Secretary of State Connie Lawson,
Congresswoman Susan Brooks, Carmel, Indiana, Mayor James Brainard [co-chair of Kasich campaign in Indiana] and
Portage, Indiana, Mayor James Snyder.

whether they supported Ted Cruz or John Kasich.”"...
