Tonight's Republican presidential debate at Las Vegas' Venetian Resort Hotel Casino takes Texas Governor Rick Perry back to the same sprawling complex where he attended his son's 2009 bachelor party. The Venetian's owner, Sheldon Adelson, has been a Perry supporter since 2007. Adelson, his daughter and top aides have contributed $46,856 to Perry's Texas war chest. Adelson and Las Vegas Sands Corp. also have given $1.6 million to the Republican Governor's Association since Perry became active in that group's fundraising.

Get the details about Perry's ties to this casino mogul.
