0

The Oxford Casino and its parent company, Kentucky-based Churchill Downs, has already spent nearly $30,000 in polling on the race to fight a new York County casino on the November ballot.

Oxford Casino registered a PAC called A Bad Deal for Maine on Monday and its parent company, Kentucky-based Churchill Downs, has already spent nearly $30,000 in polling on the race to fight a new York County casino proposed by controversial U.S. Virgin Islands developer Shawn Scott on the November ballot.

Oxford also got two well-known Republican operatives to fight their battle. The PAC is run by Trevor Bragdon and its treasurer is Roy Lenardson. They’re both former Maine legislative staffers who run their own advocacy shops — Bragdon at Rockwood Solutions, which is working for 2018 gubernatorial candidate Mary Mayhew, and Lenardson at Strategic Advocacy.
