Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson speaks at a news conference for the Sands Cotai Central in Macau Wednesday, April 12, 2012.
U.S. News and World Report:
Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson just donated $10 million to Mitt Romney’s Super PAC, and told Forbes he is willing to spend $100 million or more to ensure President Obama is not re-elected.
Adelson is by far the biggest political donor in American politics. Before this latest contribution, he had given more than $26 million to Super PACs in 2012, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. That includes the $21.5 million he gave to Newt Gingrich’s Super PAC, which single-handedly kept the former House Speaker’s presidential campaign alive. He’s also given $1.3 million to state politics over the years.
