Sheldon Adelson, the politically connected founder of Las Vegas Sands Corp., made calls to contacts in Washington to spur passage of the $2 trillion stimulus bill, but won’t be seeking loans for his company.

Adelson, one of the world’s richest men and largest contributors to Republican political campaigns, pushed to help small and midsize companies because he sees those businesses as the backbone of the economy, the company said Wednesday in a statement.
