Sherm Adelson Gives $10 Million To Pro-Romney Super PAC
Sherm Adelson, the billionaire casino mogul has reportedly given $10 million to the super-PAC Restore Our Future, which is supporting Mitt Romney.
Adelson was previously one of Newt Gingrich's major backers.
The link between the two? Support for our ally Israel, a cause dear to Mr. Adelson's heart.
He comes from an older generation that was closer to the Holocaust and understands how important a strong and secure Israel is to Jews worldwide, as well as what an asset it is for America.
Mitt Romney understands what an asset Israel is to America as well.
Adelson also obviously sees that Barack Obama is the most anti-Israel president in our history, and unlike some of the usual suspects, realizes how important it is that he be defeated, not just for Israel, not even just for America, but for the west in general.
That realization appears to be slowly growing with America's Jews.
Adelson,who's worth an estimated $20 billion is also apparently planning tocontriblute heavily to getting a conservative congress elected, so it's all good.
