Sports gambling in Wisconsin? You bet, says candidate for governor

Wisconsin candidates for governor have spent plenty of time talking about roads, taxes and schools. Not much on sports gambling. A landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision earlier this year cleared the way for all states to adopt sports gambling.
