Casino executives who have met with Governor Christie say they're more optimistic about Atlantic City.
Jim Murren, the chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts, says he believes strongly in the future of the struggling city.
"We have a lot of ideas for Atlantic City. We're going to be working with our friends at Caesars to find out how we can move Atlantic City along. I will tell you it will not be easy, but we're up for the challenge."
Caesars CEO Mark Frissora says the company is seeing improvement in its Atlantic City properties.
