Recently, the Political Action Committees supporting single candidates, also known as PACs, disclosed their 2011 end-of-year totals for fundraising and spending, and according the Center for Responsive Politics they’ve collectively spent more than 44 million dollars.
The pro-Mitt Romney group has spent 17 million, primarily on TV advertisements attacking Newt Gingrich, while Gingrich’s campaign has only spent 9 million.
Stephen Colbert’s PAC has raised over a million dollars in support of Herman Cain. Colbert has been promoting Cain in a number of ways, including asking for donations on his TV show, and holding rallies titled “Rock me like a Herman-Cain!”
Colbert has been quoted in the Washington Post saying ““I’m rolling seven digits deep! I got 99 problems but a non-connected independent-expenditure only committee ain’t one!”
