Campaigns/PACS Spent Record $10 Million In Iowa In December

Campaigns and political action committees have spent over $10 million in Iowa this December on TV and radio advertising, more than in previous years. Rick Perry leads the pack with $2.86 million, but pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future is a close second with $2.85 million. The rest, according to the Des Moines Register, are:

Paul’s campaign falls next in line at $1.37 million, followed by a pro-Perry super PAC that’s made $1.33 million in ad buys this month.

Romney’s campaign checks in at $1.11 million.

Newt Gingrich has one of the smaller figures at $476,000.

The tracking data didn’t capture recent buys by Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann, and the campaigns declined to release their numbers.
