Aug 26, 2013 |
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on a sports talk radio program Monday and championed the movement to legalize sports betting, reports the Washington Times.

Per the article:

The state of New Jersey has been mired in a legal battle with the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and NCAA since 2011, when a referendum was passed to clear the way for sports betting.

Christie believes that the states should be able to decide for themselves if they want legalized sports betting.

The Governor is preparing for re-election in New Jersey and is rumored to be pondering a run at the 2016 presidency.
