Sheldon Adelson Vows To 'Double' Donations To GOP After Huge 2012 Election Failure [View all]

Source: Huffington Post

Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson spent nearly $150 million on Republicans during the 2012 elections, almost entirely in support of candidates who did not win. But his cold streak hasn't left him at all discouraged, he told the Wall Street Journal in a recent interview.

"I happen to be in a unique business where winning and losing is the basis of the entire business," Adelson told the Journal. "So I don't cry when I lose. There's always a new hand coming up."

In fact, Adelson, whose personal wealth is estimated at $20.5 billion, says he's ready to literally double down on the GOP when those new cards are dealt.

The GOP's up-and-comers have already begun to position themselves for a share of the billionaire's largess.
