Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price has doled out $55,000 to campaigns and Georgia parties from his congressional campaign committee.
Price’s campaign committee has donated $6,600 — the maximum legal amount — to Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is running for Georgia governor.
An additional $10,000 was donated to the state Republican Party and a local county party in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, which Price used to represent. He also directed campaign funds to cover legal expenses, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Campaign committees have the liberty to spend unused funds after an election has concluded.
Price resigned from his Cabinet position last September as he and other members of the Trump administration faced mounting scrutiny for their use of private or military aircraft to travel instead of commercial flights.
Price currently is serving on the advisory board of Jackson Healthcare, and remains involved in Georgia politics as his wife Betty Price is a member of the Georgia House of Representatives.
