It appears that Sheldon Adelson, Newt Gingrich’s political sugar daddy, has decided that $15 million is enough pocket change to give to the Gingrich Super PAC in a campaign that has become virtually irrelevant. He says Gingrich is “at the end of his line.”
Sheldon Adelson, who with wife Miri, has given more than $15 million to the Newt Gingrich Super PAC Winning Our Future, said Monday he believes Gingrich is “at the end of his line” regarding the race for the Republican presidential nomination…
Adelson took sharp jabs at Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney, the two leading candidates in the Republican primary races.
“I know Rick [Santorum]. I like him. We’re friendly. But I got to tell you something, I don’t want him running my country,” he said.
Romney is “not the bold decision maker like Newt Gingrich is,” Adelson said.
Adelson predicted it’s unlikely Gingrich will become a vice presidential candidate.
Unlikely? Me becoming vice president is unlikely; Newt becoming vice president is about as likely as being struck by lightning while bending over to pick up a four leaf clover after winning the lottery.
