The Re-Newtening?

DES MOINES, IA - DECEMBER 14:  Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich addresses guests gathered for the premiere screening of "The Gift of Life," a pro-life documentary at the historic Hoyt Sherman Place on December 14, 2011 in Des Moines, Iowa. Candidates Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry, and Rick Santorum  also attended the event.  (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images) Show me the money!

The GOP Establishment has come down on Newt Gingrich with full force, and Mitt Romney and his allies are pummeling him with millions of dollars in ads that the cash-strapped Gingrich can't match. His polling numbers have already started to sink precariously.

But! Politico reports that Republican billionaire Sheldon Adelson is giving $20 million to a pro-Gingrich PAC. That would be the cash lifeline Gingrich desperately needs.
