BIG MONEY donors continue to line up with Mitt Romney

Chris Cillizza reports today that the BIG MONEY donors  and bundlers are continuing to line up with Mitt Romney:
As he ramps up his 2012 presidential bid, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney (R) has been actively recruiting major donors who did not support him four years ago — with impressive results.
Many of these new Donors are moving over to Romney's camp from other places:
The list of new names is loaded with major contributors who backed Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) in 2008 including: lobbyist Wayne Berman, who served as McCain’s national finance co-chair, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, New York Yankees president Randy Levine, oil magnate Kit Moncrief, philanthropist Mica Mosbacher, former Ambassador to Spain George Argyros and former Ambassador to Belgium Sam Fox........ Lew Eisenberg, a major GOP money man who served as the co-chairman of the 2008 Republican National Convention, is also on board with Romney.
From Mitch Daniels: attorneys Dan Dumezich and Bob Grand.

From Haley Barbour: Austin Barbour, the nephew of the governor, and Bobbie Kilberg, the president of the Northern Virginia Technology Council and the 1993 lieutenant governor nominee in Virginia.

From Pewsident Obama: Skybridge Capital managing partner Anthony Scarramucci, a former Obama donor, has signed on with Romney. Scarramucci was a law school classmate of Obama but engaged in a high profile back-and-forth with the president in a town hall meeting last fall.

Tim Pawlenty (OUCH!!!): Texas homebuilder Bob Perry, who has used his wealth to fund a number of conservative-aligned groups including Swift Boat Veterans for Truth in the 2004 election.

Perry is a BIG, BIG loss to Pawlenty.

His latest poll numbers are horrid.

I wonder if his other money men will jump the sinking ship?

Money in politics is absolutely crucial. Mitt has always been able to raise money well, and as he takes donors from his rivals, things look even more promising for him. The Republican candidate will need every dime to oppose the current President who has a money-laundering operation through Big Labor to make his campaign absolutely formidable, even in a terrible recession. Too bad that the taxpayers are one of the main contributors through public unions. More people should be aware of the link of public unions and the funds of the democrat party.
