The Couple Who Spent $33 Million In Final Days Of Campaign To Help Republicans
Casino Mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam threw tens of millions to two super PACs in the closing days of the campaign.
The couple donated $23 million to the Karl Rove-founded American Crossroads.
The Adelsons separately donated another $10 million to the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future in the last weeks of the campaign. Together, the couple donated $30 million to Restore Our Future.
Their donations throughout the campaign have drawn scrutiny, including their contributions to the pro-Newt Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future. Their January cash infusions were a major reason the former House speaker’s campaign stayed alive.
