Republican U.S. presidential candidate businessman Donald Trump responds to criticism from former Governor Jeb Bush as Senator Ted Cruz looks on during the Republican presidential debate in Las VegasBy Grant Smith and Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) – Super PACs, political groups that can raise unlimited funds to advocate for candidates as long as they do not coordinate with them, have spent record amounts on advertising this campaign season but are not getting much bang for their buck. Super PACs associated with 2016 Republican U.S. presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush and Chris Christie have led the way in spending thus far, but the TV, radio and Internet ads they have purchased have failed to lift either candidate in opinion polls. “You may have a rich Super PAC, but that’s not going to save you at the end of the day, at least at this point,” said Travis Ridout, a Washington State University professor and the co-director of the Wesleyan Media Project, which tracks political advertising.
