Newt Gingrich’s political group raised nearly $6.4 million in the second half of 2009, easily outpacing the fundraising efforts of potential rivals for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty.
Of course, American Solutions for Winning the Future, the group headed by former House Speaker Gingrich, has a distinct advantage over those fronted by former Govs. Palin of Alaska, Romney of Massachusetts and current Minnesota Gov. Pawlenty – which raised a combined total of $4.3 million in the second half of last year.
