Christie Advances Sports-Betting Plan in Face of Federal Ban

Terrence Dopp, writing for Bloomberg:

"New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he’ll move ahead with plans to legalize sports betting at casinos and racetracks by November even as he faces a possible legal challenge from the federal government.
Christie, 49, a first-term Republican, told reporters today in Atlantic City that his administration will propose regulations next week authorizing sports-book wagering in Atlantic City and at horse tracks."

I finally found a useful modern Republican!
