Mitt Romney is set to meet with billionaire casino tycoon and major campaign donor Sheldon Adelson on Tuesday at Adelson's offices at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, according to CBS News.

Adelson and his wife, Miriam, became a major force in this year's election when they helped power Newt Gingrich's campaign, contributing nearly $20 million to Winning Our Future, a super PAC that supported Gingrich. Ranked as the 17th richest person in the world, Adelson is worth roughly $22 billion, according to Bloomberg.

Adelson has said that he will support the GOP candidate nominated to run against President Obama.
