Audrey Scott

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says Penn National Gaming Inc. should "butt out" and stop spending millions to defeat gambling expansion in Maryland.

Steele, a former lieutenant governor of Maryland, and former Maryland Republican Party Chairwoman Audrey Scott expressed support for gambling expansion in a letter Tuesday. The ballot question they're backing would allow table games like blackjack and a casino in Prince George's County.
