(CNN) – Despite the looming caucuses, advertising spending in Nevada has yet to pick up considerable steam, according to figures released by the Campaign Media Analysis Group.
Silver State frontrunner Mitt Romney has led ad spending in the state since last Friday, funneling $249,220 into 590 spots, 427 of which were negative and 163 of which were positive. "Restore Our Future," the PAC supporting the former Massachusetts governor's candidacy, spent an additional $73,240 on 123 negative ads in the state.

Rep. Ron Paul of Texas spent $28,340 on 71 positive spots since last Friday.
Paul has spent the most money in the state since January 1 with $869,650 compared to Romney's $488,460 and "Restore Our Future's" $73,240. Neither Newt Gingrich nor the super PAC support his candidacy have spent money in the state since the first of the year.
The spending numbers released Friday from Nevada, where Romney is favored to win, are less than spending in other early states, including Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida.
