Rush Limbaugh gives $100,000 for Joplin recovery
JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) -- Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh is chipping in $100,000 to help Joplin recover from the deadly May tornado.
The Missouri native brought the cash along with a tractor-trailer load of bottled tea to a Fourth of July event in the city. The donation will go the Joplin Tornado First Response Fund.
Mayor Mike Woolston said in a city news release that Limbaugh knows "the heart of Joplin is still strong."
Limbaugh chose Joplin to visit because the city received the most votes in a website contest for examples of American pride.
