The leader of the Mississippi band of Choctaw Indians, Chief Phillip Martin, says opponents to his proposal to place a casino in Jackson County are supporting his foe, Beasley Denson.

Martin made the statements in a letter to tribal members.

Martin faces what could be a tough runoff election for an eighth term. He trailed Denson by a small margin in the June 12 election. The runoff is July 3.
