Vice Presidential Hopeful Paul Ryan Meets With Republican Donors at Adelson Property
US Vice Presidential hopeful Paul Ryan has scheduled to meet with deep-pocketed Republican donors at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas. That property just happens to be owned by the granddaddy of GOP donors, casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson.
The Wisconsin congressman will meet with members of the Nevada finance team on Tuesday evening - his first such event as part of Mitt Romney's campaign - but members of the media will not be allowed to attend, according to Reuters.
Adelson, meanwhile, is currently under intense scrutiny by Nevada regulators for his alleged role in Macau bribery incident.
It was not immediately clear as to whether Ryan will actually meet with Adelson on Wednesday while in Vegas.
