GOP super PACs buoyed by major donors in January

The super PACs - Mitt Romney-leaning Restore Our Future and Newt Gingrich-supportive Winning Our Future - raised a combined $17 million last month. That financial strength allowed the groups to hit the airwaves in key primary states with millions of dollars in expensive television ads.
