Jowers called super PACs "a very disturbing trend" because it gives the rich the ability to have a bigger impact on the race. "They can give so much more in relation to the campaign donors," he said.

While everyone from Romney to President Barack Obama has criticized the power of the super PACs, none of the candidates has rejected the help. Obama recently made an about-face on the issue and said some of his Cabinet secretaries will appear at fundraisers for Priorities USA, the super PAC supporting his re-election bid.
