Restore Our Future, a pro-Mitt Romney super PAC, reported spending more than $1.83 million in Florida on Wednesday and today, fueling broadcast and mailed advertisements that attack Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, while also in part promoting Romney. This is on top of more than $830,000 its spent on media in South Carolina since Tuesday, with the ads again targeting Gingrich and Santorum, federal records show. It also made a small expenditure in Florida for email advertising promoting Romney. Meanwhile, since Wednesday, pro- Gingrich super PAC Strong America Now Super PAC has spent more than $90,000 on mailers in support of Gingrich and opposing Romney. The pro-Santorum Red White and Blue Fund also reported spending almost $93,000 on Florida mailers backing Santorum.
