MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The two candidates in the Republican runoff for governor, Bradley Byrne and Robert Bentley, have different views on gambling.
Bentley advocates a statewide referendum on whether to allow gambling or shut it down completely, including stopping dog races and traditional paper bingo games.
Byrne opposes a statewide vote because it could lead to more gambling.
Neither joins Democratic nominee Ron Sparks in advocating an expansion of gambling to get more tax revenue.
Bentley says it's a poor way to fund state government. Byrne says it's bad for society and preys on the poor.
