Gingrich PAC Gets $5 Million

by Katrina Trinko

Don’t count out Newt Gingrich just yet. The Washington Post reports a PAC supporting Gingrich is getting a significant boost:

Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has given $5 million to an independent committee supporting GOP presidential aspirant Newt Gingrich, the first of what is expected to be many millions the Las Vegas billionaire plans to spend this election year. …

A person close to Adelson said that the billionaire planned to spend at least another $5 million during the campaign — either to the Gingrich-linked group or to the winner of the Republican nomination for president — and that the initial check was intended to keep Gingrich competitive in the Jan. 21 South Carolina primary.
