Adelson sees weak presidential options for Republican Jews; Gingrich at ‘end of his line’


I’m a little late on this one, but The Jewish Journal caught up with big-money political donor Sheldon Adelson, known well in the American Jewish community for his business success, his hawkish Israel support and his conservative politics. He’s been backing the Newt Gingrich horse in the GOP presidential nominee race, but he says that Gingrich is “at the end of his line.”

As for Rick Santorum, Adelson thinks that he’s a great guy but too hung up on social conservatism and “I don’t want him running my country.” And Mitt Romney, “He’s not the bold decision maker ... every time I talk to him, he says, let me think about it.”

So what’s a Republican Jew to do?
