How much does a delegate pay to make it to the floor?

SHARE How much does a delegate pay to make it to the floor?

Adriene Hill, a multimedia reporter for American Public Media’s Marketplace, sat down with Wisconsin delegate Deborah Finger to get an idea for what the people who are responsible for nominating a presidential candidate have to pay out to be a part of the process.

That Finger is unemployed and had to solicit donations to raise her roughly $3,600 in fees and travel money merely underscores the sense of pride and responsibility delegates carry with them to convention floors.

Among the money Finger had to outlay according to her discussion with Hill:

  • Delegate fee: $650 (covers many of the events costs)
  • Airfare: $503
  • Hotel room (shared): $800
