Adelson gives Romney super-PAC $10 million


WASHINGTON (JTA) — Sheldon Adelson gave a pro-Mitt Romney super-PAC $10 million.

The donation to Restore Our Future, a political action committee that works parallel to the Romney campaign, was reported by multiple media on Wednesday and fulfills the casino magnate’s promise to throw his weight behind whomever was the Republican presidential nominee.

Earlier in the primaries campaign, similar infusions of cash helped prop up Newt Gingrich’s effort to topple Romney from his front-runner status.

Adelson has said multiple times that a candidate’s support for Israel is critical to whether he gives and how much.

Romney and Adelson met last month.
