Arnold’s No Star With Vegas
By staff
Rod Smith has written in the Las Vegas Wire that the plans of former action star and weight lifter, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to expand tribal gaming in the state where he is now governor could injure markets in Nevada.

The Republican governor has named Daniel Kolkey, an executive with former Republican Governor Pete Wilson, to lead negotiations being held between the state and Indian casino operators. In his recent State of the State Address, Schwartzenneger promised that he would make sure that “California receives its fair share of gaming revenues.”

During his campaign under the recall election, which resulted in his getting the governor’s mansion after getting 28% of the vote, the star of “The Terminator” said he hoped to add one to two billion dollars to the state’s coffers from the gaming income of the California tribes.

Currently, tribal gaming revenues in The Golden State have been estimated at $3.5 billion to $4 billion. Nobody is saying ex-fantasy action hero Arnold Scwhartzenegger isn’t somehow a realist.
