State Sen. Ray Lesniak
For the first time, people in New Jersey will be able to click a mouse or swipe a screen to gamble online.
The college athletic association said that it cannot host games in states where gambling is allowed in them. New Jersey plans to license sports betting as soon as Jan. 9.
New Jersey voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday to elect all 120 members of the state Legislature and decide if they want to allow sports betting in the state.
