The Wall Street Journal reports that Restore Our Future, a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney's presidential bid, will receive its largest single donation yet:

Billionaire conservative casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who helped keep Newt Gingrich's failed presidential campaign alive during the Republican primaries, is giving $10 million to the super PAC supporting the presumptive GOP nominee, Mitt Romney, according to people with knowledge of the matter. ...

The $10 million figure appears to be the largest single donation towards Mr. Romney's efforts so far. The independent political action committee, by law, cannot coordinate its work with the formal Romney campaign.

Adelson and his family were early supporters of Gingrich, spending $21 million on his primary bid against Romney earlier this year.
