Who's spending what on Fla GOP primary ads



NBC's First Read: A Super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich, Winning Our Future, is going up in Florida with a $6 million ad buy, one day after the wife of casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, Miriam Adelson, penned a $5 million check to the group. The new ad being put into the rotation is a hard-hitting one focused on Romney’s health-care plan and him saying he’s a “progressive.”

They offer up up a handy summary of who's spending what in Florida:

- Restore Our Future (pro-Romney Super PAC): $8.7 million

- Romney: $5.7 million

- Wining Our Future (pro-Gingrich Super PAC): $1.8 million (this is the confirmed ad buy so far with likely more to come)

- AFSCME $931,000

- Super PAC USA $245,000 (running anti-Romney ads)

- Gingrich $145,000
