    The billionaire who has donated $10 million to a pro–Newt Gingrich super PAC, Winning Our Future, has said that he will also support Mitt Romney if the former governor becomes the nominee. Sheldon Adelson has also said he will continue to donate to the group as long as the former speaker wants to remain in the race, but has noted that he is one of the only large donors supporting him.

But any time that Newt decides to get out of the race, he would devote his energy and money to the overriding issue, which is beating Barack Obama.”
