AP: Adelson Makes 'Substantial' Contribution to Pro-Newt PAC

Monday, 27 Feb 2012 10:11 PM

 

A billionaire casino owner has given another "substantial" contribution to an independent group supporting Republican Newt Gingrich. The group is launching new TV ads in seven states this week.

A person familiar with the contribution says the super PAC Winning Our Future received a substantial donation from billionaire Sheldon Adelson that is similar to two separate $5 million donations Adelson and his family gave previously. The person was not authorized to discuss the donations publicly and requested anonymity.

The committee will air TV ads beginning Tuesday in Georgia, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Tennessee, four Super Tuesday states voting March 6 and considered key to Gingrich's campaign. The super PAC will also start airing ads Wednesday in Mississippi, Alabama, and Kansas.

The Washington Post first reported the donation and ads.
