It is a no-brainer to bring racinos to Minnesota ("The public sees the value in racinos," March 10). Other states are already receiving millions of dollars to help erase deficits or enhance various projects that need help. Political bent should not be involved in this discussion. It is time that our legislators do what is best for Minnesota and not be concerned that what they are doing is not toeing the party line. Wake up, politicians! You were not elected to be led around by more senior politicians who have forgotten the people.
