Statehouse News Bureau: The Pros and Cons of Issue 3 - Part 1

For the third time in 16 years, supporters of expanded gambling in Ohio are pushing a ballot issue that would legalize slot machines here. Backers are spending a record high amount - about $20 million - to convince Ohioans to vote yes. Critics know they're being outspent 20-to-1 at this point, but they believe they still have a good shot to defeat the measure. Today, Ohio Public Radio's Bill Cohen begins a 2-part series on the pros and cons of State Issue 3, and who's behind each side.
