The official platform of the state’s Republican party includes a line stating opposition to legalized gambling.

“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?”

Texans can cross the border, if they live within X amount of miles from the border then are willing to trek further into states like Oklahoma or Louisiana.  They are better off sitting at home in front of their televisions and placing bets online from their recliners via international betting sites, many of which have been in business for three decades now.
