|Ad spending per vote||Cost per delegate|
The GOP front-runner, Romney has seen more ad spending on his behalf than any of his GOP rivals. Much of that cash has come from Restore Our Future, a "super" political action committee backing his White House run. So far, the group has dropped $29 million in primary states, many times outspending Romney's own campaign, which paid for $15.8 million in ads. Based on his 495 delegate count as of Thursday, the cost per delegate and cost per vote is higher than any of his primary challengers.
