OXON HILL, Md. (AP)- The onslaught of ads over gambling expansion has been like no other in a Maryland political year.
Gambling companies have spent more than $50 million so far for and against the question of allowing table games such as blackjack and a casino near the nation's capital. That's compared with the $34 million campaigns spent in the 2006 Maryland governor's race - previously the most expensive in state history.
Terri Tolliver, a Largo resident who said she plans to support the expansion during a recent outing to National Harbor in Oxon Hill, says it will bring jobs and added revenue to the state.
But Trish Villasenor, who lives at National Harbor where a new casino could be built with voter approval, says she would rather not have the additional traffic near her home.
