MANDEL NGAN via Getty Images Sheldon Adelson typically gives tens of millions of dollars to Republican groups, but this cycle's donation came earlier than usual.

Billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, donated a combined $25 million to a super PAC dedicated to keeping Republicans in control of the U.S. Senate, according to a new filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Sheldon and Miriam Adelson each cut $12.5 million checks to the Senate Leadership Fund, which is controlled by allies of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, on June 15. The donations helped the group raise more than $30 million in June, giving it more than $97 million in cash on hand.
