According to press reports, the FIRST “primary” for the 2016 Presidential campaign is being held this weekend in Las Vegas…
…as each of the likely GOP candidates gets interviewed by moneyman Sheldon Adelson.
“Certainly the ‘Sheldon Primary’ is an important primary for any Republican running for president,” said Ari Fleischer, a former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush.
Reportedly, this weekend’s events include a poker tournament, a Scotch “tasting”, and a VIP dinner “hosted by the Adelsons in the private airplane hangar where Adelson keeps his fleet.” In-between those events, “Adelson is scheduled to hold casual one-on-one chats — over coffee, at dinner or in his private office — with the prospective candidates.”
A senior strategist who has advised past GOP nominees said the 2016 hopefuls ‘are just falling at his feet.’
So… if Billionaire mogul Sheldon Adelson gets first crack at vetting the presidential candidates… where does that leave regular Republicans, here in the Granite State?
