Casino mogul gives $1M to new 'super' PAC



WASHINGTON (AP) — Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson is giving $1 million to a "super" political committee aimed at helping conservatives get elected in Florida.

Federal filings show the new Freedom PAC supports "strong conservative candidates" in the state, like Senate contender Connie Mack. He's currently a Republican House member.

Adelson and his wife have given more than $20 million to GOP-oriented super PACs this election cycle. Most of that cash went to a super PAC working to get former House Speaker Newt Gingrich elected president.

The contribution was first reported Monday by the Sunlight Foundation.
