Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and his allies are making an all-out push to win the Iowa caucuses -- or at least to knock down their toughest opponent -- according to advertising data from key local markets around the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

Romney and Restore Our Future PAC, a super PAC run by Romney supporters but technically unaffiliated with the campaign, are spending nearly $1 million this week alone on Iowa television ads, the data show. Restore Our Future is spending a total of $713,132 on paid advertisements this week, while Romney's campaign is spending $258,055. 
The $971,187 in combined Romney advertising is nearly as much as the rest of the Republican field is spending in Iowa. In total, three other candidates and two super PACs are spending $1.2 million on their own paid spots.
