In Fla., donations to Gingrich erase Romney’s edge
Gingrich backers give another $5m
With at least $15 million already pouring into advertising for the last week of the campaign, next Tuesday’s Florida primary looms as a potential death match in the Republican presidential nominating contest. A $5 million contribution from the wife of casino baron Sheldon Adelson to a super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich has all but erased the huge media advantage enjoyed by rival Mitt Romney. With so many chips now on the table, far more than the 50 convention delegates is now at stake in the Sunshine State.
