    Christie had the vision and balls to get it done. Other states need to follow and regulate sports betting and tax it.

    Former state senator Ray Lesniak did a lot of work to push it as well.

    Kind of sad an elected official gets special praise for doing the bidding of the people. Always amazed me, politicians do everything in their power to get your money. But something where people will gladly pay (gambling and weed) they fight against tooth and nail, with a few exceptions. Slowly but surely the trend is changing. Money always rules in the end.
