Chris Christie Says He Supports Gambling, But Does He?

Gambling911.com has previously reported on the major Republican presidential candidates' records on gambling issues.

We revealed how Texas Governor Rick Perry, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney would be no friend to the gambling industry should any of them be elected President of the United States, all of them having stymied or attempted to stymie the expansion of gambling during their respective political careers.

But those are all declared candidates for the presidency.

Michele Bachmann Odds of Winning Iowa Caucus Now Greater Than 50 Percent

The Intrade crowd has Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann’s chances of winning the Iowa caucus just slightly better than 50 percent and perhaps with good reason.

Iowa kicks off the primary and caucus season and Ms. Bachmann certainly has the edge there.  She was born and, for a brief time, raised in Iowa.  Her family of "Norwegian Lutheran Democrats" moved to Minnesota while she was still young.  Her ties to Iowa’s Evangelical voters should also boost her chances there. 

Bachmann officially announced her campaign on Monday (June 27).

Ron Paul: “U.S. Gold Should be in Hands of People”

In an interview with CNBC, US Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul wants to stop the falling value of the U.S. dollar by digging into America’s gold reserves.

"They’re worrying about raising the debt limit," said the Texas congressman. "I’m worried about the value of the dollar" especially if the Federal Reserve continues to "print money" whenever it wants.

"They try to pump up the fear and scare us into doing things," he said of the government, adding that was how the bank bailouts came about. "Aren’t we defaulting if the dollar is worth 90 cents this year?"
