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)
