Billionaire looks for mainstream Republican for 2016


Recommended Posts

Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who along with his wife plowed more than $92 million into efforts to help mostly losing candidates in the 2012 elections, is undertaking a new strategy for 2016 — to tap his fortune on behalf of a more mainstream Republican with a clear shot to win the White House, according to people familiar with his thinking.

In 2012, Sheldon and Miriam Adelson spent so much of their money on long-shot candidate Newt Gingrich that they helped extend an ugly intraparty fight that left the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney, severely bruised by the time he faced President Obama in the general election.

This time, the Adelsons are plotting their investments based not on personal loyalty, but on a much more strategic aim: to help select a Republican nominee they believe will have broad appeal to an increasingly diverse national electorate.

The change in attitude comes amid early jockeying by a lengthy list of aspiring Republican presidential contenders to win the affections of the billionaire, who is in the beginning stages of assessing the field.

Politics is a strange game...

 

"But there was a time not too long ago that billionaires Charles and David Koch were modest Democratic Party donors."

What ever happened to George Soros?

Nothing, it was a groupie of George Soros that started this thread to take attention away from his name. ssdd. When societal evolution works everytime practiced against genetic continuation by every side creating a social justification to deny now is eternity, why change the rules in educating self deception cradle to grave.

He's still here...the left doesn't like the baggage so they stay away from commenting on the Soros syndrome. :)

 

"The Koch brothers and George Soros continue to bankroll the upcoming 2014 midterm elections. Much has been made in recent years about the role of outside contributions, political action committees (PAC,) and the individuals that finance them. The 2014 midterm elections look to continue this trend as powerful backers are already lining up on both sides of the political aisle to pour money into the election. The sources of this financing are many and diverse, but much of the attention and criticism this election cycle is falling on the Koch brothers and George Soros."

 

 

"Billionaire currency trader George Soros stands as liberal version of the Koch brothers. He is similarly outspoken in his political views and his willingness to spend money on the electoral process. His political activity in the United States also dates to 2004. That year he called the effort to defeat President George W. Bush “a matter of life and death” and that he would give up his entire fortune if it would guarantee Bush’s defeat. He was one of the founders of the Center for American Progress, a liberal PAC, and supports many liberal and progressive organizations through his Open Society Foundation."

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush will get top billing when he and other potential 2016 presidential candidates join billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson for an exclusive Republican gathering next week in Las Vegas.

 

Bush, who is quietly exploring a run for the White House, will be the featured speaker at an exclusive VIP dinner on Thursday hosted by Adelson and his wife, Miriam, at his company’s private airplane hangar at Las Vegas Macarran International Airport, according to a draft itinerary obtained by The Washington Post. The Adelsons’ dinner for Bush will kick off the Republican Jewish Coalition’s four-day spring leadership meeting, during which politicians and major GOP donors will mingle at golf and poker tournaments, as well as in political strategy sessions.

 

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former U.N. ambassador John Bolton will address the group during its meeting on Saturday morning, while Ohio Gov. John Kasich is to speak at a luncheon that day. The gathering is being held at the Venetian Resort and Hotel, a glamorous property built by Las Vegas Sands Corp., the casino and hospitality company that Adelson runs.

 

For potential presidential candidates, getting to know Adelson is critical. During the 2012 presidential campaign, Adelson established himself as perhaps the most influential Republican fundraiser by spending tens of millions of dollars to fund super PACs. He first supported former House speaker Newt Gingrich, but later backed the eventual nominee, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, and even traveled to Israel with Romney ahead of the Republican National Convention.

Define diverse national electorate? the socially divided ancestry that takes pride in not understanding how they are psychologically managed between stages of societal evolution playing two ends against the middle 7 ways from 4 institutional notions separating global spiritualism character counts within a national ideology genders don't count until they adopt a local social justification of acting as society's defenders against anybody knowing what is really taking place currently.

 

Using hypothetical measurements doesn't lead to definite other than nobody can know everything about themselves as sole results of ancestry with facts stacked against genetic continuation self contained to the skin one lives within the eternity here now.

I'm taking bets

A good booky never uses their own money, but is a middle personal agent between those that do for a cut in the action. So that makes the middle class of societal evolutionism, marketing the gamble between two extreme incomplete measurements while selling the notions societal evolution canot last without them taking bets on which side wins and all others pay to play self deception again and again, and again...
