Gingrich and U.S. Jewish mogul Adelson forge firm alliance
Advertisements [?]
Newt Gingrich is surging to the head of the Republican field. He doesnt boast a large number of Jewish supporters, but has some big names in his corner.

In the battle for the Republican pro-Israel vote, Newt Gingrich lacks Mitt Romneys broad base of prominent Jewish donors. But he has something potentially more powerful: the support of one of Benjamin Netanyahus most significant American backers, and a relationship with the Israeli prime minister himself that stretches back decades.

Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, one of the wealthiest men in the world and a major donor to Jewish and conservative causes, is widely known as a Netanyahu stalwart. Less well known are his equally close ties to Gingrich, to whom he has been a major giver in recent years.
