Calif. recall candidates seek tribal support
Friday, August 29, 2003

The California Nations Indian Gaming Association on Thursday heard from three contenders in the state's recall election.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Gov. Gray Davis (D) said he would consult tribes before picking members of the state commission that regulates gaming. He also said he was wrong to seek $1.5 billion from tribal casinos, but later told the paper he was still interested in revenue sharing.

Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante (D) and state Sen. Tom McClintock (R) said they would lift the state's cap on the number of slot machines each tribe can operate, according to the paper. McClintock also said he would prevent forced unionism at casinos, the paper said.
