Mitt Romney’s spending fast for 2008

NewsMax reports that Mitt Romney is not quite the fiscal conservative that he would like for the GOP base to believe him to be. 

Based on the report Romney filed with the Federal Election Commission over the weekend, his spending was so prolific he had to lend his committee $6.5 million during the quarter, allowing him to cover the difference between $20.5 million he spent and the $14 million he raised.

That loan also means that, for all intents and purposes, Romney has personally paid for every second of the $4.9 million in television ads his campaign has aired since he formally declared his candidacy in February.

 If Romney doesn’t slow down, he may end up like John McCain, shoveling the money out faster than he can take it in.  Michelle Malkin has continuing coverage here
