Marc Leder, the Republican backer who hosted the fundraiser that became infamous for Mitt Romney’s comments about the 47 percent, is now interested in buying Hostess, reports Muckety.
According to Fortune, Leder’s private equity firm, Sun Capital Partners, wants to buy the bankrupt maker of Twinkies and other snack foods, and reopen its factories.
Leder and his co-CEO, Rodger Krouse, were co-chairs of the Romney campaign’s Florida finance team. They were also big donors to the super PAC working for Romney’s election.
Sun Capital is an investor in Tagg Romney’s company, Solamere Capital. Other investments include Hickory Farms, Friendly’s, and Boston Market.
