Rich Killion, a spokesman for Millenium Gaming, which hopes to put a casino at Rockingham Park, sees the positions of the gubernatorial nominees as more important than the party platform.
“The fact of the matter is both gubernatorial candidates have a plan and approach for limited casino gaming in New Hampshire,” Killion said.
Salem Democratic Committee chairman Larry Disenhof said the Republican platform could raise questions about GOP candidates down the ballot.
“If nowhere else in the state, this is important to Salem,” Disenhof said.
This past legislative session. state representatives followed their party’s lead more than the needs of Salem, he said.
“Where does their allegiance lie?” Disenhof asked.
