Las Vegas Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson donated another $5.5 million in February to Winning Our Future, the super PAC supporting Newt Gingrich, according to The Hill.
This latest donation, which some have speculated will be his last, brings the total contributions from Adelson and his family to the pro-Gingrich PAC to more than $16 million.
Gingrich has trailed badly in the polls in recent weeks, coming in a fourth in Tuesday’s Illinois primary, where he campaigned little. The former House speaker has staked his campaign on the South, despite losses in Mississippi and Alabama, and he has resolved to stay in the race until the GOP convention this summer.
