Poker Players Alliance Launches Poker Initiative in Kentucky

Nice little bit of news from BOB PAJICH over at Cardplayer

Poker Players Alliance Launches Poker Initiative in Kentucky
Campaign Encourages Members to Contact Elected Officials

The Poker Players Alliance (PPA) has launched a statewide advocacy campaign in Kentucky in the name of poker.

The hope is to rally PPA members and poker fans in Kentucky to contact their elected officials to tell them they want cardrooms to be allowed in their state and warn them that they will make their votes count for the poker cause there. The campaign is being run by PPA Kentucky State Director Rich Muny.

PPA directors have said that the PPA will put the pressure on at local state levels, with the help of state representatives, in order to convince states’ elected officials at that poker is an American pastime that should be protected.

The current Governor of Kentucky, Republican Ernie Fletcher, is a Baptist minister who is against the casino industry. His opponent, Democrat Steve Beshear, is running his campaign on the promise of allowing voters to decide if casinos should be allowed to open there.

Fletcher has made this year’s election for Governor more like a gambling referendum. Earlier this month, he went campaigning throughout the state on a “No Casinos” tour, while Beshear wants to put the decision in the hands of Kentucky’s citizens.

Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
