Politico reported this morning that Mitt Romney is burning through money. Quickly. Romney’s campaign and Super PAC, Restore Our Future, earned $13.1 million in donations in January, but spent $32.7 million. Romney still fares far better than rivals Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, whose campaigns tallied $3.2 million in cash and $2.7 million in debt.
You almost have to see it to believe that this kind of thing is true. Rick Santorum’s spokeswoman Alice Stewart appeared on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports last night and made an astounding claim to which she has later backtracked. Here it is:
Yesterday, Rick Santorum smartly got out in front of clearly expected attack ads by Mitt Romney. The ad shows Romney, or “Rombo”, haplessly scampering around trying to shoot mud out of a machine gun. Except, the mud actually looks like human feces. Pretty funny. Enjoy!
