USF economist says RNC was more bust than boom for Hillsborough
"From August 2011 to August 2012 sales in Hillsborough rose 5.83 percent — less than the 6.31 percent seen in the rest of Florida.

In fairness, there was another study that suggested the RNC did stimulate a beneficial economic impact, but that study was paid for by the RNC to the tune about about 10 grand.
