Santorum Money Man Swings Behind Romney

Santorum Money Man Swings Behind Romney

With Rick Santorum dropping out of the race, the question has quickly become whether conservative support will finally consolidate behind certain nominee Mitt Romney. When it comes to the monetary support within the Republican Party, the answer is apparently a resounding yes.

Today, Foster Friess, the investor who funneled almost $1.7 million to Rick Santorum’s failed presidential campaign, said he was going to stand behind Romney. “I’m obviously going to be of help in whatever way I can,” he told Politico. “I’ve got some plans as to how I might able to be of help. The bottom line is, I’m going to be very supportive and I’ll probably have plans to share with you a little later on.” Freiss never attacked Romney, even while he was supporting Santorum. Freiss said he may donate money to the Crossroads groups, run by Karl Rove, which will spend several hundred million dollars targeting President Obama in this election cycle.
