Ryan and Adelson to Meet in Las Vegas
CBS News – Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan is scheduled to hold a private event on Tuesday evening in Las Vegas that reportedly includes GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson. But the event isn’t a fundraiser; an aide said Ryan will take part in a meeting with Mitt Romney’s Nevada Finance Leadership team that was scheduled before Romney tapped him as his running mate.
The Romney campaign hasn’t always had a smooth relationship with Adelson, the billionaire casino magnate who spent millions of dollars backing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich during the GOP primary campaign. He has turned his support to Romney during the general election, and hosted a fundraiser for Romney during his recent trip to Israel.
