Churchill Downs donates $100,000 to political action committee

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A political action committee gets a major contribution from Churchill Downs.

Churchill Downs donated $100,000 to the Next Generation Leadership Fund.

The group works to put Republicans in office in Kentucky.

Churchill Downs won't say exactly why it donated the money, but wouldn't dispute that the money would be used to try to oust Democrats from the House.

Democratic House Speaker Greg Stumbo said the donation could be a bad move. The Downs has been pushing for casino-style gambling in Kentucky, and Stumbo thinks Republicans would end that.
