Beshear to Push Gambling Amendment if Reelected

Gov. Steve Beshear will push to put on the 2012 ballot a constitutional amendment to expand gambling if he's re-elected this November. Beshear, a Democrat, faces Republican challenger and state Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, and independent candidate Gatewood Galbraith in the Nov. 8 election. The state needs to expand gambling so the horse industry can compete with surrounding states, Beshear said during an interview with The Enquirer's editorial board Tuesday.
