Meet The Press Your Luck Slots For those who like a side order of politics with their drunken escapades in Las Vegas' myriad gambling establishments, presidential candidates Senator John McCain (R-Arizona) and Senator Barack Obama (D-Illinois) will be stumping for votes in Las Vegas this week.

Sen. McCain will be holding a fundraiser on June 25th which will be attended by notable casino magnates - Terry Lanni (CEO MGM Mirage), Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson (CEO Las Vegas Sands Corp) all of whom will be most likely be making large campaign donations.

Don't tell Terry Lanni, but the Phoenix Business Journal lists Steve Wynn as "Mirage Resorts chairman". Wynn was ousted almost 10 years ago. Note to self : don't open a business in Phoenix.

Meanwhile, Sen. Obama will be in Las Vegas on Tuesday for a voter registration rally and to take a swing at winning the $1500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low Split-8 or Better event at the Rio (we made that last part up, although Obama is supposed to be a pretty good poker player.)

I will vote for whomever Wynn gives the most money to. At this point it's a crap shoot, pun intended.
