Adelsons Donated $33 Million in Final Weeks of Campaign

Casino executive Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam contributed $33 million to two super-political action committees in a last-ditch effort to elect Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Adelson, chairman of the Las Vegas Sands Corp., and his wife, a physician, gave $23 million to American Crossroads and $10 million to Restore Our Future in the last three weeks of the presidential race, Federal Election Commission filings show. President Barack Obama won re-election Nov. 6 with 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206.
