Video: Campaigns Against North Jersey Casino Expansion ContinuePosted:
NEW JERSEY – Those fighting against a plan to build two new casinos in North Jersey are continuing their campaign against it, even though polling shows the measure is unlikely to pass.
The lobbying group "Trenton's Bad Bet" released four new TV and radio ads against the proposal, which will be on November's general election ballot. The referendum asks voters whether to approve new casinos near New York City, but does not specify where or what tax rate they would pay.
The new ads come after a Stockton University poll released last week found that the plan is supported by only 27 percent of voters statewide, with 68 percent opposing it.
