(Las Vegas, NV) — Newt Gingrich’s main benefactor may be giving up on his presidential campaign. JewishJournal.com reports Sheldon Adelson told a small group at this week’s TribeFest event the former House speaker is “at the end of his line” for the Republican nomination. The Las Vegas Sands chairman opposes Rick Santorum because of his conservative views on social issues, and remains unimpressed with Mitt Romney, comparing him to President Obama. Adelson’s family has donated $15-million to Gingrich’s Super PAC.
