Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, and his wife, Miriam, have each donated $2,700 — the maximum amount allowed by law — to GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz's campaign, according to reports filed late Sunday with the Federal Election Commission.

However, Adelson has not endorsed a candidate yet for the 2016 campaign, reports The Wall Street Journal, and he is also expressing interest in Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Adelson, who is the chairman of Las Vegas Sands Corp., spent more than $100 million in 2012 supporting Republican campaigns and leading GOP candidates to seek his money for their 2016 races.

But Adelson and his wife have already donated the maximum $2,700 amount to another
candidate — South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. Back in 2012, he and his family donated $15 million into a super PAC supporting former House Speaker Newt Gingrich's bid for the GOP nomination.

When Gingrich lost, Adelson told The Wall Street Journal that he doesn't "cry when I lose. There's always a new hand coming up."
