1

March

Mitt Romney's Free and Strong America PAC has sent out more money to politicians, hoping to lock down support as he edges toward a presidential run. Florida would be key, and Romney gave to the following re-election campaigns:

  • Sen. Marco Rubio: $2,500
  • Rep. Sandy Adams: $2,000
  • Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart: $2,000
  • Rep. Rich Nugent: $2,000
  • Rep. Dennis Ross: $2,000

In all, Romney gave $83,500 to 40 candidates. His PAC boasted that it comes on top of the $124,500 handed out last month.
