(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Sheldon Adelson is making another big donation on behalf of conservatives.

The Las Vegas Sands chairman has pledged $10-million to industrialist brothers Charles and David Koch, whose “Americans for Prosperity” political action committee has run negative ads against President Obama.

Adelson, whose worth is estimated at nearly $25-billion, had given at least $16.5-million to Newt Gingrich’s failed presidential bid and $10-million to Mitt Romney’s superPAC, “Restore Our Future”.
