(Newser) – Stephen Colbert may not have won any primaries, but he's beaten Mitt Romney by at least one measure. Colbert's super PAC received $200-plus donations from 17 Texans, compared to 15 for Mitt Romney, the Houston Chronicle reports. The Supreme Court ruling that paved the way for super PACs "just opened the doors for election to be bought and sold," says a woman who made her point by donating to Colbert. His Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow "took something complicated and brought it to a level where they show what it is and how it works." Romney has far more pressing matters at hand tonight in Michigan.
