"Billionaire GOP Donor Pledges $10M To Koch Brothers’ 2012 Election Efforts"

Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who has poured more than $70 million into Republican campaigns this cycle, has pledged $10 million to support the Koch brothers’ efforts in the 2012 election. The promised donation was announced at Charles and David Koch’s donor summit earlier this week. Groups in the Koch political network, including Americans Prosperity that is spending on attack ads against President Obama, are expected to spend nearly $400 million ahead of November’s election, and Adelson has promised unlimited donations to support GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign.
