In addition to taking over a dysfunctional municipal government, I knew the problem could be improved with a new option: sports betting. We passed a law in 2012 authorizing sports betting. The NCAA and the four major sports leagues challenged our legislation, so we passed a new law. They challenged us again, so we took our case to the United States Supreme Court, and we won. Now every state in the country has the opportunity to authorize legalized betting on sports. Since New Jersey became the first new state to authorize sports betting, more than a half-dozen states followed our lead.
