Dems' Dissent Over Casinos

This article is more than 11 years old.

With Governor Deval Patrick proposing three casinos for Massachusetts this week, some of the reaction has raised this question: Has he alienated part of his base in the state?

A number of progressive democrats say they're upset with the Governor, and want him to find another way to raise revenue to realize his proposals and promises.

Two guests join WBUR's Bob Oakes to talk about the issue today. They are Democratic consultant Dan Payne and Lynne Lupien, who writes the 'blog "Left in Lowell."

This program aired on September 21, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
