Mitt Romney, hoping for Florida friends in 2012, spreads campaign money to Marco Rubio, others



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.
