Republicans Eye Romney Fundraising Operation

"Now that Mitt Romney has categorically ruled himself out of the 2016 presidential race, the battle is on for the most enduring part of his legacy -- his fundraising operation," Politico reports.

"Romney teamed with the Republican National Committee to raise $1 billion in 2012 and still controls perhaps the preeminent donor list in all of Republican politics. The pro-Romney super PAC Restore Our Future raised $150 million almost entirely from massive six- and seven-figure checks."

"It's a perfect match for presidential prospects and their allies who have begun quietly building their own finance networks, seeking donors who can write large checks, bundlers who can collect scores of $5,000 contributions, and massive databases of phone numbers and emails from which thousands of small contributions can be wrung."
