ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie supports asking voters if they want to change the state constitution to allow casino gambling in northern New Jersey.

Appearing on his monthly “Ask The Governor” program on radio station New Jersey 101.5 FM Wednesday night, Christie said he has no problem with the question going on the ballot “right away.” The governor said competition is only going to grow, particularly in New York.

Christie said he would support the amendment as long as there are provisions that would help Atlantic City and workers adjust to the shrinking casino market.

Christie’s comments came a day after Hard Rock International and the Meadowlands Racetrack proposed a casino just outside New York City.

The companies will unveil the project next week.
