WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson and his wife have given $75 million to a new super PAC that is attacking Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Since its launch in August, Preserve America has inundated the airwaves with over $76 million in attacks against Biden.

Adelson's role in Preserve America, as well as the amount of money both he and his wife, Miriam, contributed to it were unclear until Thursday, when the group filed its first mandatory disclosure with the Federal Election Commission.
