Some politicians support a Shinnecock casino at Belmont

Key Long Island political leaders expressed support Thursday for the idea of locating a possible Shinnecock casino at Belmont Park. Should the tribe receive approval to open a gaming facility, Belmont is "the only place it would possibly make sense," said Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi. A spokesman for State Sen. Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) added that the Senate minority leader "would be open" to an Indian-run casino there.
