The California Democratic Party revealed its ballot measure endorsements for November, and the measure to legalize online sports betting was not among them.

The party voted in opposition of Prop 27, the online sports betting measure, while remaining neutral on a separate measure to legalize sports betting at tribal casinos and race horse tracks. The party’s stances on these competing measures give voters a guide on which way to vote when they appear on ballots in November.

The only thing left to be seen is whether voters will take the recommendations on sports betting, which is currently legal in over 30 states including at least 20 that allow online betting.

“By opposing Prop 27, California Democrats rejected out-of-state corporations and reaffirmed their commitment to California’s Indian tribes. Prop 27 is not a solution to anything. It would expose children to a massive expansion of gambling and turn every cell phone, gaming console, tablet and laptop into a gambling device. Prop 27 is a direct attack on tribal gaming and Indian self-reliance,” Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians Tribal Chairman Reid Milanovich said.
