Campaign 2012 – Taking on a Hefty Price Tag

If you want to be the president, you better pay up.  The road to the White House is a costly one as Mitt Romney is experiencing.  In January alone he spent 19 million dollars which is phenomenal, spending three times the amount that he raised.  That big push that he made was spent in order to seal the deal for his republican nomination but now that Rick Santorum is gaining momentum, Mitt knows he is in for the long haul.  Now Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Santorum and Romney are in search of new donors to help their campaigns make the final push.  In an ideal world, one wouldn’t have to raise capital to become president but get the candidacy based on their merits and integrity.
