Super PACs Are Spending, So Far to Little Effect

Money backing Jeb Bush has yet to boost the Republican candidate in the polls
In the first 12 days of the year, a super PAC backing Jeb Bush spent more than $13.5 million in Iowa, New Hampshire and other states on ads and direct mail promoting the former Florida governor and attacking his rivals.
That amount is more than super PACs spent in the entire year leading up to the 2012 Iowa caucuses.
Since the campaign season began last year, super PACs have spent more than $109 million to trumpet the major candidates for the Republican nomination, a Wall Street Journal analysis of Federal Election Commission filings shows.
By contrast, super PACs in 2011 spent just $6.4 million in support of their candidates. More than half of that promoted Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
