Super PAC donors revealed

CNNs Erin Burnett reveals the super PAC numbers and donors associated with Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich and President Obama.

As for who came up on top in campaign financing, CNNMoney.com gives us the breakdown. More money, more votes: The billion dollar campaign

Let there be no doubt: The campaign finance floodgates are officially open.

Disclosure forms filed this week with the Federal Election Commission confirmed what has long been expected: Individuals and corporations are using new outside expenditure groups to influence political campaigns in a big way.

And they're not being shy about it.

The filings offered a look at the donors behind pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future, which spent much of the last week buying advertisements designed to derail Newt Gingrich's campaign in Florida.

The filing reveals that 22 corporations and 38 individuals made donations of at least $100,000 to the group, which reported cash-on-hand of $23.6 million - more than the Romney campaign itself.
