Adelsons Made Another Losing Bet Before Election

It turns out that casino executive Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam poured more money into Mitt Romney’s losing presidential bid than was initially reported.

In the weeks before the Nov. 6 election, the Adelsons contributed another $10 million between them to the super-political action committee backing Romney — Restore Our Future — according to new Federal Election Commission reports.

That brought their total contributions to the super-PAC to $30 million.

The Adelsons earlier gave $15 million to the super-PAC supporting one of Romney’s Republican primary opponent, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and overall contributed more than $65 million to outside groups for the 2012 election.
