“The biggest bucks come from the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future: Between Thursday and today, the organization has spent more than $2.07 million in Florida alone to fund broadcast advertisements and phone banking designed to both support Romney and attack both Gingrich and fellow GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum, federal records indicate,” per Dave Levinthal. “The pro-Santorum Red White and Blue Fund super PAC has also invested nearly $225,000 into Florida since early last week, with its independent expenditures coming in the form of mailers supporting Santorum and telephone calls panning Gingrich…Meanwhile, the pro-Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future on Saturday purchased $100,000 worth of general Internet ads that promote the former House speaker and attack Romney.” A $1 million TV ad campaign sponsored by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees likens Romney to unpopular Florida Gov. Rick Scott, which will probably help Gingrich.”
