Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's political action committee reports receiving more than $900,000 in donations this year, including $250,000 from billionaire Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam. Adelson owns the Venetian and Palazzo in Las Vegas.

A postelection campaign finance report for Brewer's committee discloses the Oct. 19 contribution from the Adelsons.

The Associated Press has reported the couple gave a total of $95 million in political donations during the election season. Adelson made significant contributions first to Newt Gingrich and later to Mitt Romney in the presidential campaign.

Brewer's committee reported making large outlays in support or against various Arizona congressional candidates. Those included six-figure spending in support of Republican Jeff Flake's successful campaign for U.S. Senate.

In all, the committee reports spending $680,000.
