WASHINGTON — A new "super" political action committee supportive of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has raised more than $12 million.

Federal documents released this week reveal that donations to the Restore Our Future PAC include big-dollar checks from hotel mogul J.W. Marriott and hedge fund manager John Paulson.

Restore Our Future's 89 contributions — nearly all of them $5,000 or greater — from the first six months of this year are aimed to help Romney's 2012 White House run.
