Battle to legalize NJ sports gambling supported by Gov. Corzine!
According to an article I read on NJ.com, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine (D) has joined Senator Ray Lesniak in a spirited battle to legalize sports betting in the state of NJ. There are only four states in the country that allow sports gambling – Delaware, Montana, Nevada, and Oregon. Legalized sports betting in the state of NJ would do wonders for increasing the money coming into the state, increased tourism, and bigger boxing matches and sports events that take place here. I love and adore Atlantic City as well as the surrounding towns down in that Southern part of the state. Atlantic City was practically my backyard during my years as a student at The Richard Stockton College of NJ. I worked there for almost a year and it was a tremendous experience. Legalized sports gambling would do wonders for that city as well as this state. Once gambling is legalized, I can start cleaning up in the casinos on these bold and often accurate boxing predictions that I make. What better way to pour money back into an ailing economy?
