Adelson reportedly setting up pro-Trump super PAC

Top aides to Jewish casino magnate Sheldon Adelson are in talks to set up new super PAC to support the Republican candidacy of Donald Trump for president, according to Politico.

Adelson’s team has reportedly been in talks with high level political consultants, including former Republican Governors Association executive directors Nick Ayers and Phil Cox, former Rand Paul campaign manager Chip Englander, and former Mitch McConnell chief of staff Josh Holmes.

Two weeks ago Adelson reached out to Jewish Republican leaders, calling on them to support the then-presumptive Republican nominee.

“I’m asking for your support” for Trump, Adelson wrote in an email Monday to more than 50 members of the Republican Jewish Coalition. Adelson told them he had met with Trump recently and is “specifically convinced he will be a tremendous president when it comes to the safety and security of Israel.”

Adelson was the top donor of the 2012 presidential race, with his family putting almost $90 million into it, and he has signaled he is willing to be a financial driver again.
