Sheldon Adelson to Give Pro-Romney SuperPAC $10M

Jerome Favre/Bloomberg via Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Sheldon Adelson is opening his wallet once again, this time contributing at least $10 million to Mitt Romney’s super PAC “Restore Our Future.”

The Wall Street Journal first reported the haul and ABC News has confirmed the amount.

A Romney donor who is involved in fundraising for both the campaign and the superPAC said that Adelson gave two more contributions above the $10 million mark to the super PAC, but would not reveal the amount.

Restore Our Future would not confirm or comment on the donation.

“We don’t comment on donors or donations or potential donors or donations,” said ROF spokesperson Brittany Gross.

The billionaire casino mogul and his wife Miriam, who are worth more than $20 billion, gave $21 million to Newt Gingrich’s super PAC. He met with Romney in Las Vegas last month and attended a fundraiser for him. Adelson was widely expected to donate to the presumptive GOP nominee’s efforts at some point.
