Three main Republican gubernatorial candidates in Kentucky said they would support varying degrees of sports betting during a Tuesday debate in Louisville.
Three figures in question are Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles, and Somerset Mayor Alan Keck. All agreed that sports betting’s increasing popularity has led to the rise of illegal gambling markets that the state should take control over.
Auditor Mike Harmon, the fourth and final candidate on hand for the debate, said that he opposed sports betting in all forms. Harmon is receiving the least support of the four at the polls.
