Santorum’s Financial Backer Friess Says He’ll Support Romney

Wednesday, 11 Apr 2012 09:33 AM

Money management mogul Foster Friess, the biggest financial backer of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, says he’ll now support presumptive nominee Mitt Romney. Friess donated almost $1.7 million to the Red, White, and Blue Fund, the super PAC supporting Santorum.

“I’m obviously going to be of help in whatever way I can” [to Romney], Friess told Politico Tuesday, a few hours after Santorum suspended his campaign. Friess said he hadn’t yet discussed his plans with the Romney campaign or the pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future.

“I’ve got some plans as to how I might be able to be of help,” Friess said. “The bottom line is, I’m going to be very supportive, and I’ll probably have plans to share with you a little later on.”

Friess refrained from harsh attacks against Romney during the race and actually gave the former Massachusetts governor’s campaign $1,000 last May.

Friess suggested he may donate to the Karl Rove-linked Crossroads groups. “I’m not sure if I have already,” he said. “I know that I have contributed to some other groups, but I can’t remember which ones. There are so many of them. They’re all over the place.”
