Billionaires Keep Gingrich, Santorum, Huntsman Financially Afloat

Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Jon Huntsman may have dwindling funds in their campaign coffers. But they each have billionaires backing their super PACs, allowing them to continue running top-shelf campaigns, Politico reports.

The fat cats include Las Vegas casino titan Sheldon Adelson, who just ponied up $5 million for the pro-Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future – money that will allow the group to widely distribute a video blasting front-runner Mitt Romney for his tenure at private equity firm Bain Capital.

Meanwhile, Foster Friess, who built one of the country’s top money management firms, is providing major financial support for the Red, White and Blue Fund, the super PAC supporting Santorum. The group’s $537,000 of ad spending in Iowa may have played a crucial role in pushing the former Pennsylvania senator to a second-place finish in the Hawkeye State’s caucuses.

Huntsman was born wealthy. His father, Jon Huntsman Sr., founded Huntsman Chemical, which helped turn the entrepreneur into a billionaire. He has reportedly given millions to Our Destiny, a super PAC supporting his son.

Will we ever be allowed to have an honest leader or are we destined to have one Big Government prostitute after another?

Yes, the people have the power, but many people either dont know about Ron Paul or only hear media spin and lies. Amazing what people will beleive, whether its about the newsletters or that he "wants to end government" or that he "wants Iran to have a nuclear weapon"... Like WOW.

This is our last chance for who knows, decades, centuries?

Yep. That's how they roll.

The billionaires want to see the status quo of government bailouts continue, so they keep funding the status quo candidates.

Without the dollar amounts that said billionairs donated to the candidates, this is irrelevant. If a millionaire donates 100k, and a billionaire donates 10K, does the fact that one of the donors was a billionaire matter?

In a sense all that is really happening is the banks giving party donations of money that they took from the people that they're donating it too. Funny how that works hey. ( I wish there was a little smiley face blowing his own brains out)
