Restore Our Future, a conservative super political action committee (PAC), has spent more than $1 million this past week on ads and other efforts on behalf of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, according to the Center for Responsive Politics
The group, created by former Romney aides, targeted most of its spending at undermining potential voter support for former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, whose popularity had been rising in recent polls.
According to center research, Restore Our Future has the potential to be a big boon to Romney’s campaign, given its massive fundraising prowess so far. The center reported that the group had raised $12.2 million by June 30 of this year, the date of its most recent disclosure filing with the Federal Election Commission.
The center also noted that other GOP contenders also are getting outside help from so-called independent groups or super PACs, which have reportedly spent a total of more $5.1 million since Oct. 1 on campaign efforts.
