Between the Mavs making the NBA Finals and millions in GOP donations, the new Dallas Mavericks owners have made an impression, NBC 5 DFW reported:

“Miriam Adelson came to the rescue of a major Texas politician caught in a tough reelection fight earlier this Spring.

“It was part of a larger plan to support allies in expanding casino gaming in Texas. Millions of dollars in donations, a recently launched group, and the purchase of an iconic Texas sports team have positioned the Adelson and Dumont families to have sway next year in the state capitol.

“This week, the Dallas Mavericks continue to play for the NBA championship against the Boston Celtics. A successful professional sports team alone can give lawmakers sway and access.

“The families will also bring political donations and profits from their Las Vegas Sands casinos. Miriam’s late husband, Sheldon Adelson, was one of the most well-known Republican political donors in the country. It’s a legacy Miriam intends to continue.
