WASHINGTON (AP) — Three Republican governors who weren’t invited to GOP super donor Sheldon Adelson’s political gathering in Las Vegas are nonetheless trumpeting their agreement with him against Internet gambling.

Govs. Rick Perry of Texas and Nikki Haley of South Carolina wrote this week to congressional leaders that Internet gambling compromises states’ ability to control betting for money. Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana wrote that he would do everything he could to stop Internet gambling from spreading in his state.

Their letters are highlighted on the website for an advocacy group that Adelson helped bankroll.

All three governors are mentioned as possible candidates in the 2016 presidential election. As it happens, Adelson is casting for a candidate to shower with millions of dollars in campaign cash.
