Newt Gingrich’s South Carolina win probably wouldn’t have been possible without the $5 million his benefactor Sheldon Adelson ponied up on January 7th. That allowed Newt to at least compete in Super PAC terms in South Carolina. As we noted at the time, that mattered more than $5 million because Adelson’s almost limitless personal resources (8th wealthiest man in the US) meant that he could, if he chose, continue funding Newt almost without limit. And tonight we have news that Adelson has ponied up another $5 million for the pro-Newt Super PAC to level the playing field (slaughter field?) in Florida.
