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........

I’m gonna try. Last time I tried, I never could get the transaction completed. :(
“The only ways Mitt Romney doesn’t get the nomination:”
*The mother ship from the planet Kolob arrives to take Mitt and family home.
In regard to the presidential race, I myself am taking the position for now that until the convention is a done deal that conservatives still have options. Those who are resigned to Romney now because of the media are like sheep.
Competition e.g. the primaries is not only about the people that will REPRESENT it is as well about the ideas that will be represented and who best will carry the conservative banner premised upon their pledge to embrace the ideas; embrace the platform.
If Romney even wants to have a chance to get my vote then he will have to earn it and that entails adopting the conservative platform RATHER than asking people to pledge to him and sign on the dotted line HE NEEDS to make a pledge to the ideas, some of which he has a history of not promoting.
Again, we elect an executive and not a King and I could care less how he feels as long as he promotes and adheres to the platform e.g. He will IMPOSE upon the left if necessary to execute conservative governance; RATHER than compromise conservative principle with a lame politically correct disclaimer stating a belief in conservative principle but no wish to 'impose' such principle.
We require an unapologetic conservative -not a metrosexual toe tipping pansy that looks good in a suit!
Thank you! I have been wondering, okay worrying, about the Adelson’s.
. Clearly, Newts PAC is conserving its resources- why?
He’s a Catholic-he has faith and believes in miracles.
“Newt has looked like a weak an ineffectual campaigner for months now”
This is not the case. Failure on the part of the media to mention Gingrich has nothing to do with his own campaigning ability.
“A government that does not recognize the Creator is a government that can not protect the rights He endowed us with.”
Amen Brother.... bears repeating as many times as it takes till it sticks.
I hope and pray that Newt can cause a huge upset at the Florida convention.
I,too,will stand with Newt until he stands down.
Never Mind the Kolob, Here’s the slot IP xes.
YOUR dog ain’t hunting, Jersey - we heard ya the first time.
Getting a bit frantic, aren’t you. This news - the truth the media won’t print - upset you a bit?
He has no support outside of FR, you say? Hmmmm - sounds more like YOU don’t have a life outside of FR.
you are posting, not only fast and furious more than others, but you fingers post the same thing 3 times - who's struggling with a schizophrenic problem?
Pitiful, you are...
We have to be the ‘news reporters’ for Newt, because the MSM - including FOX, are ‘disappearing’ him, except for negative news - and that untrue as well.
I am mailing this to everyone because so many still actually BELIEVE it if they see/hear/read it in the news - even stanch conservatives still praying for Newt. They just lose faith so easily.
This article in CNN also proves what Newt said about them being about the only one that is reporting anything - except negative - on him - including FOX. And FOX went apoplectic, calling him a whining liar.
If we email this out and get them to also send it out - it can reach millions before morning -
Take five right now - and DO IT ;o)
