Is big GOP money finally flowing to Republican front-runner Mitt Romney?
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Major contributors to a key Republican political organization founded by political strategist Karl Rove have boosted their financial support for front-running presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
It's an indication the GOP establishment may be starting to coalesce behind the former Massachusetts governor.
Campaign records submitted Tuesday to the Federal Election Commission show that a handful of wealthy donors have provided much of the $6.4 million in contributions last month to the pro-Romney "super" political action committee Restore Our Future.
The donors also are among the most generous contributors to the super PAC founded by Rove, American Crossroads. Rove was a top adviser to President George W. Bush.
Crossroads is likely to become the pre-eminent Republican group airing negative advertisements against President Barack Obama this year.
