Adelson to double contribution to help Newt’s presidential bid

Gondolier Numero Uno Sheldon Adelson, through his wife, will give Newt Gingrich's SuperPAC another $5 million, a source close to Adelson confirmed today.

That makes $10 million from the man who built the Venetian (in Vegas and Macau!) to help his old friend, the former speaker.

My guess is so long as Gingrich stays competitive, Adelson, the eighth richest man in America, will be there to help through Winning Our Future. And in so doing, he will keep Gingrich, whom he has known for a decade and a half, competitive with Mitt Romney's money machine.
