Four Orgon governor candidates oppose Warm Springs Gorge casino plan

Portland, Oregon (AP) May 2010

Four leading candidates for Oregon governor have expressed opposition to the proposed Warm Springs tribal casino in the Columbia Gorge town of Cascade Locks.

The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde released written statements opposing the casino from Democrats John Kitzhaber and Bill Bradbury, as well as Republicans Chris Dudley and Allen Alley.

The Grand Ronde tribes run a competing casino southwest of Portland.

In 2005, Gov. Ted Kulongoski and the Warm Springs tribes signed a compact allowing the casino to proceed. But the project has been hung up since then in the U.S. Department of Interior.
