Supporters of legalizing casinos in Kentucky are mounting another campaign that promotes expanded gambling as a lucrative revenue source during lean times. They're hoping for a strong stretch run for a proposal that's been mired in defeat.
Its most ardent backers insist it's not such a long-shot this time, but even they sound worn down by years of setbacks.
Democratic Rep. Larry Clark of Louisville says this is probably the last chance to get it passed.
Critics sound confident the proposal will fall short again.
