'No Agenda' in Marco Rubio Backing of Adelson Web Gambling Bill, Candidate Says

Florida Senator and U.S. Presidential hopeful Republican Marco Rubio insists his recent support of a measure to ban most forms of online gambling at the federal level has nothing to do with the man who is pushing said legislation, GOP mega donor and casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

The Restoration of America’s Wire Act, drafted by another Republican Presidential hopeful South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, was introduced in the U.S. Senate last week.  Rubio brings much higher name recognition to that piece of legislation.
