Adelson gives Sandoval $300,000

In two contributions during the last 10 days, Las Vegas Sands boss Sheldon Adelson gave Gov. Brian Sandoval a total of $300,000 for his political action committee.

Most of the money the governor raised was then transferred to the Nevada Jobs Coalition, run by Sandoval's consultants and the vehicle for the third-party spending in what looks like a successful attempt to take over the state Senate.

Sandoval also took $50,000 each from Wynn Resorts, SLS and Resorts World, as well as $25,000 from MGM Resorts on his way to a $558,000 haul for his New Nevada PAC.

Here's the report.
