Casino Mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife Miriam threw tens of millions to two super PACs in the closing days of the campaign.

The couple donated $23 million to the Karl Rove-founded American Crossroads.

The Adelsons separately donated another $10 million to the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future in the last weeks of the campaign. Together, the couple donated $30 million to Restore Our Future.

Their donations throughout the campaign have drawn scrutiny, including their contributions to the pro-Newt Gingrich super PAC Winning Our Future. Their January cash infusions were a major reason the former House speaker’s campaign stayed alive.
