Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson “was believed to be close to announcing his backing of” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) “shortly after the Dec. 15 Republican debate. … That scenario, however, has run into resistance from a surprising source: Miriam Adelson. … An Israeli-born physician, Miriam Adelson has become enamored of late with” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), “according to four Republican sources close to the couple.” Cruz “has impressed her with his unwavering toughness on national security issues, especially his support for Israel. … ‘He really likes Marco, but she really likes Cruz — and it’s a standoff,’ said one well-placed Republican fundraiser familiar with Adelson family dynamics.” (Yahoo)
