From, Septermber 22, 2016

The leaders of a campaign that was launched just last month to drum up support for a measure to allow casino gambling in North Jersey suspended its operations on Thursday, citing grim public and internal polling data on the Nov. 8 ballot question.

Jeff Gural, the operator of The Meadowlands Racetrack, and Paul Fireman, a former Reebok chief executive, issued a joint statement announcing that they were ending the advertising campaign “OUR Turn NJ.”
