Las Vegas Sands executive Sheldon Adelson just poured $30 million into the Republican Congressional Leadership Fund.
It’s a massive cash infusion that Republicans hope will alter the party’s electoral outlook six months before Election Day.
Politico reports House Speaker Paul Ryan and two other senior Republicans flew to Las Vegas last week to meet with Adelson at the Venetian Hotel.
Adelson’s donation comes at a perilous moment for House Republicans as they try to save their majority.
The $30 million contribution is three times as much as Adelson gave to CLF in 2016. CLF is a super PAC designed to protect and bolster House Republicans.
