    In campaign news, the billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has given $5 million to a pro-Gingrich super PAC called Winning Our Future. While individual donors are barred from giving more than $2,500 to a candidate, they can give unlimited money to independent groups known as super PACs. Adelson had previously given more than $7 million to Gingrich’s former PAC, American Solutions for Winning the Future. Adelson is the owner of Israel’s largest daily newspaper and a close friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He is worth more than $21 billion.

    On Sunday, U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta appeared on CBS’s "Face the Nation" to discuss Iran.

    Leon Panetta: "I think the pressure of the sanctions, I think the pressure of—diplomatic pressures from everywhere—Europe, the United States, elsewhere—is working to put pressure on them, to make them understand that they cannot continue to do what they’re doing. Are they trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No. But we know that they’re trying to develop a nuclear capability. And that’s what concerns us. And our red line to Iran is, do not develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us."
