WASHINGTON, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Top Republican donors Sheldon Adelson and his wife gave another $10 million to the "Super PAC" backing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in October, saying they hoped to "level the playing field" with Democrats ahead of the Nov. 6 election.

In a campaign year of unprecedented contributions, Adelson and his wife Miriam have stood out above the rest.

The 79-year-old billionaire chairman of Las Vegas Sands Corp , Adelson emerged as the Republican Party's biggest patron in the 2012 campaign, pouring at least $47 million into Republican coffers with his wife.

The Adelsons gave $5 million each to the pro-Romney Super PAC Restore Our Future, accounting for about half of the fund's cash raised from Oct. 1 through 17, according to Federal Election Commission filings released on Thursday. The filings are the last disclosures before the Nov. 6 elections.

Why is Romney even in the race? Because Billionaires like Adelson are simply dumping millions upon millions into the race.
