Adelson Gives Romney PAC $10M

With Newt Gingrich out of the running for the White House, it seems billionaire casino owner Sheldon Adelson has found a new horse to back. In the past few days, Adelson and his wife have given $10 million to Restore Our Future, a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney. That brings the Adelsons’ 2012 political donation tally to super PACs to at least $35 million. Adelson may well give more. He’s been quoted as saying he would considering giving $100 million to candidates across the country during the 2012 election cycle. Adelson and Romney met at Adelson’s hotel in Las Vegas in early May following Gingrich’s bowing out of the race.
