Gingrich Moneyman: Candidate is 'At the End of His Line'

A day after Newt Gingrich announced he was significantly cutting back staff and limiting his campaign in the fight for the GOP nomination, the casino magnate who gave millions to support his candidacy said that the former House speaker is “at the end of his line," according to The Los Angeles Times.

Sheldon Adelson and his family have donated roughly $16.5 million to the pro-Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future.

 

“It appears as though he’s at the end of his line," Adelson said in Las Vegas. “Cause, I mean, mathematically, he can’t get anywhere near the numbers." He added that it is "unlikely there’ll be a brokered convention.”

It was unclear whether Adelson would continue to bankroll the pro-Gingrich super PAC. Meanwhile, he hosted a dinner with GOP bigwigs and his family sent strong signals he’d be willing to donate to a Romney super PAC, though Adelson said, “He’s not the bold decision-maker like Newt is.”

What about Santorum? “I know Rick. I like him. We’re friendly. But I got to tell you something, I don’t want him running my country.”
