Standing by his man: GOP millionaire Foster Friess wants Santorum in 2016

Wealthy conservative investor Foster Friess is best known in Washington, D.C. for helping fund Rick Santorum’s presidential campaign. And the multimillionaire says he would support the former Pennsylvania senator again if he runs in 2016, even likening Santorum to Ronald Reagan.

“If people let him out of that box of social conservative, and appreciate how much more he brings to the table, I think he’s still one of my favorite candidates,” says Friess.

Friess spent well over a million dollars on Santorum’s campaign, and says SuperPACs — specifically the injection of large amounts of cash in elections — were not really anything new in the 2012 cycle.

“People forget that the SuperPACs are just the reiteration of the 527s,” says Friess, referring to independent groups that are allowed to raise money for political activities and issue advocacy.
