A person close to a Las Vegas casino owner who helped bankroll an independent group supporting Newt Gingrich says his wife is contributing $5 million to the same organization.
Miriam Adelson, wife of Sheldon Adelson, will make the contribution to the Winning Our Future super PAC backing the former House speaker.
Sheldon Adelson contributed $5 million the group initially, helping it run ads promoting Gingrich's candidacy in South Carolina. Gingrich won the South Carolina primary on Saturday.
The Adelson associate was not free to discuss the matter for the record and disclosed the contribution anonymously.
The person said the Adelsons had asked the group to use the money on ads that support Gingrich and not on negative attacks.
