WASHINGTON - A "Super PAC" supporting US Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich received a new cash infusion from billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, according to a source familiar with the donation.

The Las Vegas tycoon and his family have given nearly $11 million to the group already, almost single-handedly funding the "super" political action committee (PAC), Winning Our Future.

The new contribution, which came in a few days ago, is "substantial" and comparable to previous ones, the source said, although declining to specify the amount. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a specific private donation.

The money comes at a critical moment for Gingrich, whose struggling campaign is hoping to do well enough on March 6 in several conservative states - including his home state of Georgia - to justify staying in the race.
