Our take: The Mitt Romney presidential campaign is boosting up their election effort, focusing on advertisements paid for with part of the millions of dollars raised by the super PAC supporting Romney.
The super PAC supporting Mitt Romneys presidential campaign raised $5 million last month and began ramping up its general election effort, spending $4.8 million boosting Romney and disparaging President Barack Obama, according to a report filed Wednesday morning with the Federal Election Commission.
In a marked change from previous months, when almost all of the ads from the super PAC Restore Our Future were negative assaults on Romneys challengers for the Republican nomination, most of the ads paid for in May touted Romney and his fitness for the Oval Office.
The group reported spending $4 million on ads supporting Romney, versus only $20,600 on ads attacking Obama.
