Fundraising isn’t even that important nowadays because of the group Citizens United. All you need is that one Billionaire in your camp. Sheldon Addelson who is Newt Gingerich sugar daddy recently gave his war chest another $10 Million dollars. This Sheldon guy owns the Venetian Casino. Why did he give Newt all this Money? But then I don’t know why people want to ride in gondoliers in the lobby of a hotel either.
Foster Fries is the rich guy that is bankrolling Rick Santorum’s campaign. Mitt Romney has his own billions from taking over vulnerable companies and selling off all their assets. Something should be said for the Supreme Court’s decision to make this Citizen’s United ruling that changed American politics in ways that people still aren’t quite aware of. We have noticed weirdo candidates with lots of money seemingly being able to move forward.
