Mitt and Ann Romney have donated a paltry $75,000 each to the joint Romney-RNC Victory Fund this month, The Hill has confirmed — the maximum that the two can give to it. This appears to be the first time the Romneys have chipped in any of their own money for the race, despite being worth about $230 million. This is a change from their 2008 strategy, which involved spending $41 million on Mitt's bid.
