Flush with cash from casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, the super PAC Restore Our Future is reportedly launching a major ad buy in support of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
According to media reports, the group is spending more than $7 million on ads in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The ads are due to run for ten days beginning on Wednesday.
The reports regarding the ad buy come on the heels of news that Adelson donated $10 million to the pro-Romney group.
Adelson previously supported former House Speaker Newt Gingrich for the GOP nomination, pumping more than $21 million into Gingrich's super PAC, Winning Our Future.
Restore Our Future, which is not allowed to coordinate with the Romney campaign, spent $40 million to help Romney secure the Republican nomination but has not run any ads in over a month.
According to a separate report from the Wall Street Journal, Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., two of Romney's potential running mates, are slated to appear at a fundraiser for Restore Our Future in New York this week.
