Las Vegas - Adelson Aided Romney in Late $10 Million Bet
Las Vegas - New campaign finance figures for the final two weeks of the 2012 campaign show that Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife gave $10 million to a “super” political committee supporting losing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Adelson, who owns casinos in Las Vegas, Singapore and the Chinese territory of Macau, has been the top donor in the 2012 race, providing more than $54 million supporting Romney and other GOP presidential candidates and an additional $18 million for other Republicans. The new $10 million figure for Adelson and his wife, Miriam, is for the pro-Romney Restore Our Future super PAC, but their totals could grow as final campaign finance tallies are reported Thursday.
Adelson had vowed to spend more than $100 million on GOP causes this election cycle.
