Super PACs Outspend Donations

    SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - MARCH 16:  Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney attends a New Progressive Party rally on the North Side of the Capitol building March 16, 2012 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Luis Fortuno, the island's governor and a Republican, has already expressed his support for the former governor for president. Romney's two-day campaign on the island is an effort to win the 23 GOP delegates up for grabs on the U.S. territory. Romney's fiscal views are likely to resonate with the island's large private sector.  (Photo by Christopher Gregory/Getty Images)

    The more ads you run, the more money you spend. A Federal Election Commission (FEC) report filed today shows that the pro-Romney super PAC called Restore Our Future raised just more than $6 million in February—but spent twice that amount. As Romney enters what may be the final leg of the nomination process with a win in Illinois, the super PAC has $10 million cash left. Meanwhile, Gingrich’s top super PAC raised—and spent—nearly $5 million during the month. The pro-Santorum Red, White, and Blue Fund raised a meager $3 million in February and only has $365,000 left in the bank. With GOP candidates running low on funds, super PACs are more important than ever, which may not bode well for the anti-Romney brigade.
