Cordish nears victory in Anne Arundel County

With just three precincts left to report, developer David Cordish looks to have won the high-profile, multimillion-dollar contest to build a casino in Anne Arundel County.

Nearly 56 percent of voters said “Yes” to the zoning Cordish needs to move forward with his plans to build a slots parlor with 4,750 games next to the Arundel Mills shopping mall, and 44 percent voted against it.

The actual totals, with 98.5 percent of the precincts in, were 103,263 in favor and 82,008 against.
