Description

The super PAC started by Stephen Colbert has $776,033 left in its account, raising speculation about how the politically minded comedian and Comedy Central star might spend the money in the neck-and-neck presidential race with Election Day just two weeks away. Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report,” started the Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow political action committee in June 2011 largely to highlight the strong political influence of super PACs -- which can raise unlimited amounts of money for companies, individuals and unions. The speculation has centered on whether Colbert intends to drain the account on a so-called “October Surprise.” A Republican strategist told FoxNews.com that amount of money could buy roughly a week’s worth of TV ads in Cleveland, a major city in the key battleground state of Ohio.
