As Gingrich prepares exit, what will his billionaire benefactor do next?

Washington (CNN) - For months now, his name has gone hand-in-hand with that of Newt Gingrich.

But as the former House speaker prepares to leave the Republican nomination race next week, Sheldon Adelson has to decide what political causes - and which candidates - to support.

    Surely he'll find a way to play well with the neocons pulling Rmoney's strings. Perhaps he wants to be another string-puller.

    I hope that they will do something useful with the money. I am thinking factories of some kind here in the US or more money to fund things like food banks, job training programs and homeless shelters just to name a few. I doubt that will happen, but I can hope for the best.

    I suppose he'll go buy another politician or two.

    Take a good look at what the right wing activist judges on the Supreme Court have unleased with Citizens United. How can people like this be allowed to influence and contol elections in America? Ask yourself if this is the direction that this country should be headed where billionaire casino owners are the kingmakers.

    Stuped question !

    Romney and tax deductions for overseas investment. Romney and pro Israel extremism. This is more about Israeli off shore banking laws and US overseas banking laws. Large amounts of US cash were hidden by way of Switzerland to Israel.

    TAXES !

    If he is a true lemming (sorry little guys) he will hold his nose and fall in line with the rest of the rethugs who can't stand the flip flopper or he can save his money because the $250M will never see the inside of the WH unless he goes on a tour.

    How about supporting and subsidizing the price of gas ? Why not step up to the plate and pay the difference on any gas purchase over $2.50 for the middle class folks,this would have been money well spent and a better then backing a loser.
