Skip to comments.Adelson family gives more to pro-Gingrich super PAC (Under-reported!)
Posted on 04/21/2012 10:55:54 AM PDT by VinL
The Adelson family continues to be the major benefactor behind the super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich's candidacy, Winning Our Future.
While Nevada casino mogul Sheldon Adelson - who has donated $7.5 million to the group - did not give more in March, his wife Dr. Miriam Adelson contributed an additional $5 million last month, according to a report filed late Friday night with the Federal Election Commission. All totaled she has given $12.5 million and the family has given more than $20 million.
The family's contributions to Winning Our Future are a major reason the group has been able to continue operating. In total the group has raised $23 million.
It brought in $5,051,082 last month, meaning almost all of its receipts were from Miriam Adelson's one contribution, which came on March 21.
The PAC has $5.8 million cash on hand. It spent just over $1.5 million last month supporting Gingrich's candidacy at a time when his run for president faced major financial problems and questions about its viability.
Adelson is also beginning........

“Im in, til Newts out.”
I went to a Newt rally and have a Newt pin stuck into my dashboard
So let me get this straight - you think a Romney presidency is actually a defeat of Obama & his policies??
Hahahahaha!!! Good one, troll.
The only ways Mitt Romney wins in November:
I’m sending more money to Newt, the campaign needs money as well as the PAC. I appreciate the support of the Adelson’s, if I ever go back to Las Vegas I’ll go to the Venitian and help them recoup.
“Im in, til Newts out.”
I’m in ‘til Newt says he’s out”.
It’s amazing how many are running around claiming Newt’s out. I’ll wait for him to state he’s out.
I’ll send some more cash his way too.
I think maybe you have not been fully deprogrammed from your brainwashing yet.
YES, you realize Obama mush be defeated; however, I think you do not really understand why and what principles are the basis for this necessary outcome.
Freedom is not a result of having the lessor of two evil sitting in the throne as king. Freedom is a result of dismantling the throne and kicking any would be king to the curb.
For instance, those that would compromise and sacrifice the moral issues for the sake of the fiscal issues, are those who simply want their king in the throne. [They] compromise freedom for power and although they do so for different reasons than the left [they] are the same as the left in embracing a government ruler and by default placing the Creator and our endowed inalienable rights below said government king.
A government that does not recognize the Creator is a government that can not protect the rights He endowed us with.
Something to think about.
Maybe you need to tell that to the 40-42% of people who support in the latest Rasmussen tracking poll - these polls are being given no media attention, by design or edict of the RNC, not sure which...
RNC establishment strategy: Publish no poll numbers; spread the word that Romney is the nominee; have people vote based on blackout and misinformation expecting Romney to win big; then hit hard with Romneys wins and Newts losses to bully Newt into dropping.
Please do yourself the honor of reviewing actual polls by doing a Google search for 2012 Republican presidential polls (name state) and you will see why the RNC is using this tactic. Then spread the word!
Obama with the dem-media complex, millions of dollars, sycophants everywhere in the media, versus Mitt Romney with the entire conservative media capitulated behind him, his millions, and NEWTON LEROY GINGRICH is only 7 points behind Obama in the lastest Rasmussen tracking?
THEY WANT YOU TO THINK IT'S HOPELESS...

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!
That’s your angst speaking - YES HE DOES. You have one chance to defeat mitt AND obama - with Newt. Either support Newt or save your whining for other than FR. Because you were told from the beginning. The Adelson’s are using their money FOR AMERICA - they are 100% pro American as is Newt.
Anyone who opposes Newt is NOT!
OUR CONSTITUTION is held dearly to President-to-be Gingrich! He is ready for day one with pen in hand! Woo Hoo!!
I just sent NEWT off some more bucks. Anyone who fights for America this hard is indeed a Patriot. Blessings on Newt as he fights FOR one nation under God and curses on them who attack him!
I’ll admit that this is the worst possible scenario as I prepare to hold my nose for the second Presidential election...in a row. You left me with good points to ponder in addition to whether I can financially survive 4 more years of intentional and wanton destruction of this country that we all love.
I believe that your post was particularly succinct in capturing what is the essence of the dilemma when we are presented with such meager options.
I think you underestimate the influence that Free Republic has on America. Dan Rather is no longer at CBS due largely to the Patriots here at Jim Robinson's site for Conservative Activism. The membership here is at least 300,000. Each FReeper probably know at least 50 others so the direct "point-of-sale" totals around 1.5 million. The very best of America is found here at FR and FReepers are well engaged to amount to a force well beyond their numbers.
More generally, look at what life was like when Newt Gingrich's revolution took hold in the 90's.
s/1.5 million/15 million/
How did that dot get there? :-)
