One of the Republican Party’s most prominent financial backers is dead. 

Sheldon Adelson, the 87-year-old Las Vegas Sands CEO, passed following a long bout with cancer. 

Per Fox Business

Adelson was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2019 and recently stepped away from the company to resume his treatment, the company said on Jan. 7.

“Mr. Adelson was the first employee of Las Vegas Sands – “Team Member Number One” he liked to say. Today, more than 50,000 Sands team members have Dr. Adelson and the entire Adelson family in their thoughts and prayers and are grateful to have had their lives touched by a true force of nature” according to a statement from Las Vegas Sands on his passing.

Adelson has been a longtime donor to the Republican Party, giving more than $430 million to conservatives during the 2020 campaign. He was an early and longtime supporter of President Trump during his initial run for the White House.

Adelson, who is survived by his wife Mariam and five children, had a net worth of $35.6 billion as of Jan. 11, according to Forbes.

It is very bad. Mr. Adelson was the best supporter of the Republicans and PresidentTrump.
I hope his widow and children will continue to support the Republicans and Presidnet Trump in 2024
