ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Gov. Chris Christie says he isn’t throwing in the towel in the fight to legalize sports gambling in New Jersey.
Christie said Thursday after visiting a group home for people with disabilities that he’ll take the fight to the Supreme Court if he has to.
“If somehow they think that because I lost in the first court that I’m giving up – one, they don’t know me and two, they’re ill-informed,” Christie told reporters including WCBS 880’s Jim Smith. “If what I have to do is walk off sports betting to get a one-weekend, $6 million – which is about the estimate of the economic impact – I’ll stay with the sports betting.”
