TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A footwear magnate and a racetrack operator are behind a new effort to persuade New Jersey voters to approve casinos in the northern part of the state.

Former Reebok chairman Paul Fireman and Meadowlands Racetrack operator Jeff Gural are backing TV, radio and digital ads that ask voters to approve a proposed constitutional amendment expanding gambling.

The amendment that proposes opening two casinos in northern Jersey is on the November ballot. Fireman and Gural have each proposed building new gaming venues in that part of the state.

The “Our Turn NJ” ad campaign includes a 30-second television spot that says New York and Pennsylvania have “stolen billions of our gaming revenue” and asks residents to vote yes on expansion.
