Former California governor opposes gambling expansion

31 January 2008

CALIFORNIA -- As reported by the Ventura County Star: "Former California Gov. Pete Wilson reasserted his opposition to Indian casino gambling during a speech in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday, and he predicted the state won't receive significant new revenue as a result of the four gaming propositions on the ballot next Tuesday.

"Wilson's stance puts him at odds with a fellow Republican, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has endorsed Propositions 94-97.

"...Wilson, who was governor from 1991 to 1999, described the advertising campaign in favor of the initiatives as 'misleading' and the promise of more money for the state as 'hypothetical.'
