ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says Penn National Gaming Inc. should "butt out" and stop spending millions to defeat gambling expansion in Maryland.
Steele, a former lieutenant governor of Maryland, and former Maryland Republican Party Chairwoman Audrey Scott expressed support for gambling expansion in a letter Tuesday. The ballot question they're backing would allow table games like blackjack and a casino in Prince George's County.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - MGM Resorts International has spent about $8.4 million for advertising to support an expansion of gambling.
The Las Vegas company's latest report released Tuesday is about $3 million more than its last report released four days ago. MGM is hoping voters will approve an additional casino site in Prince George's County, near the nation's capital.
