Christie adviser vying for spot on Casino Reinvestment Development Authority

    The New Jersey Senate could vote as early as Thursday on the appointment of former Rutgers University athletics director Bob Mulcahy to the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.

    Mulcahy most recently served as an adviser to Gov. Chris Christie on gambling, racing and sports assets in the state.

    Mulcahy has a lot working in his favor, since he was among the advisers who recommended the creation of Atlantic City’s state-run tourism district, as the Press of Atlantic City reports.

    His nomination has been approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
