The Giants made left tackle Nate Solder their biggest acquisition in free agency this offseason in a move that didn’t surprise anyone who watched the team play last season.
He was a partner of Goldman, Sachs & Company from 1996-2000 and also previously served as a former co-president of Constellation Energy Group, a Fortune 500 company located in Baltimore, Maryland.
But the Supreme Court sided with the state last month, overturning a 1992 federal ban on sports betting and opening the door for states across the country to allow such wagering. Nevada — home to Las Vegas — was the only place in the U.S. to offer full-scale sports betting before that.
Monmouth Park was hoping to become the first place outside of Nevada to accept bets on games. Drazin said it was possible because of a 2014 law the state enacted to get around the federal ban by allowing sports wagering at casinos and tracks without state regulation.
Mark Geragos and his legal team are expected to subpoena President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, according to reports from Yahoo and USA TODAY Sports.
The reports state there already have been informal attempts to coordinate depositions with Trump, who repeatedly has blasted NFL players who choose not to stand on the field during the national anthem as a form of protest.
The state Senate voted 37-0 and the state Assembly 73-0 at the Statehouse in Trenton — less than a month after the U.S. Supreme Court handed New Jersey a victory in its seven-year court battle to legalize such wagering.
Now it’s up to Gov. Phil Murphy to decide whether to sign the bill into law and make New Jersey the second state to begin accepting bets since the court’s ruling.
While he publicly supports sports betting and lawmakers are urging him to capitalize on the wagering as soon as possible, Murphy hasn’t said when he’ll take action on the legislation.
He said during a telephone town hall event Thursday night that his administration needs to review the measure.
And that’s gonna happen sooner than later in New Jersey, and that’s a good thing, Murphy added.
