“The state has decided to export its gambling dollars to Lake Charles, to Shreveport, to Oklahoma, and to Las Vegas,” said Matt Mackowiak, a Republican strategist and former press secretary of Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. “The question is, how long is Texas going to be satisfied sending those dollars elsewhere?”
