Massachusetts Candidate to Look into Tribal Gaming Potential - Friday 21st of April 2006

WASHINGTON Gubernatorial candidate Deval Patrick said yesterday that his research so far leaves him 'uncomfortable with slots in racetracks and casinos in Massachusetts,' but he needs to do more 'homework' before deciding whether to endorse casino gambling in the state.

"In town for a campaign fundraiser, Patrick said he needs more information about possible gambling proposals from the Wampanoags, a 1,468-member Cape Cod tribe which received preliminary federal recognition last month.

"…Patrick said he's heard more from gambling opponents, but, 'What I am going to do is listen' and study the issue, he said."
