Update on the ad-spending race

 

With just four days until the Iowa caucuses, here's an update on the ad-spending race in the GOP presidential contest.

The headlines:
-- Rick Perry and Ron Paul have spent the most (both in Iowa and early states)

-- The pro-Romney Super PAC Restore Our Future has spent nearly $3 million in Iowa (and much of that hitting Newt Gingrich in negative ads)

-- The Gingrich campaign has spent less $1 million, and the primary pro-Newt Super PAC Winning our Future has spent just over $250,000 -- far less than the Romney/Restore Our Future and Perry/Make Us Great Again totals.

-- And the pro-Santorum Super PAC Red White, and Blue Fund has spent more than $500,000 benefiting Santorum
