Casino and hotel magnate Sheldon Adelson reportedly has plans to give another $10 million to a group supporting Newt Gingrich for the Republican presidential nomination.

The donation to Winning Our Future, an independent committee, or Super PAC, that is run by former Gingrich associates, will reportedly be delivered in the coming days, CBS News reported citing an unnamed source close to Adelson.  CNN reported the same, also citing an unnamed source with knowledge of the donation.

The infusion of cash to the Gingrich campaign comes two weeks before the Super Tuesday primary vote in 10 states on March 6:  Alaska, Georgia, Idaho, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.
