Republican mega-donor Al Hoffman of North Palm Beach, disappointed at last week’s defeat of legislation to expand background checks for gun purchases, says he’s reluctant to raise money for GOP candidates who oppose “reasonable” gun control measures.

Hoffman’s 2012 fundraising included hosting a $50,000-a-plate dinner at his house for Mitt Romney in September.
