Andrew Adams, KSL Newsradio Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney picks up a chunk of change in Utah's Dixie. It's likely burning a hole in his pocket.

It'll probably go straight to campaign ads in early primary states. Mitt Romney is the first major candidate to buy air time. He says he can hang with any contender, and discounted the idea of joining another's ticket.

Mitt Romney, presidential candidate: "Boy, I can't think about anything, other than being successful in a presidential bid. That's what I'm after. Nothing else is of interest to me at this point."

He might be thinking a lot about poll numbers. A new survey from Quinnipiac University shows him trailing against all the other name candidates, republican and democrat. He only has seven percent of the GOP vote, although pundits expect that number to rise.
