KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Hundreds of supporters of a new casino in Kenosha rallied for jobs at the former greyhound dog track.

Local and state officials were among those who showed up to support the proposed Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Wednesday night. The rally was held at the former Dairyland Greyhound Park in Kenosha. Officials estimate the casino could generate more than 10,000 jobs.

Supporters of the Menominee Indian tribe’s plan say the $800 million hotel and casino would have a huge economic impact on the area. There’s strong opposition to the project as well.

The Potawatomi tribe is concerned it will draw business away from its Milwaukee casino.
