NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Super PACs supporting the Republican candidates are burning through mounds of cash ahead of Super Tuesday. The four super PACs that support the remaining contenders -- Restore Our Future, Winning Our Future, Red, White & Blue Fund and Endorse Liberty -- have spent $5.9 million from Feb. 29 through March 4, according to opensecrets.org.
It appears that the huge amounts spent by the super PACs behind Romney and Gingrich have boosted the candidates numbers in crucial states. Romney has now grabbed a slight lead against Santorum in Ohio by two-tenths of a percentage point, while Gingrich has increased his lead in Georgia to 18.5 percentage points, according to poll averages by RealClearPolitics.com. -- Written by Joe Deaux in New York. >Contact by Email. >Follow Joe Deaux on Twitter.
