Donald Trump, the billionaire whose name sits atop two Atlantic City resorts, is searching for a partner in New Jersey's online gambling market since all 12 casinos notified the state of plans to offer Internet wagering.

Trump, who retains online gambling rights to his name, has held talks with Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc., the company that owns Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal and Trump Plaza hotels, and other potential partners, according to his daughter, Ivanka Trump, an executive with the New York-based Trump Organization Inc.

Without an agreement, the Trump Organization will miss out on the debut of online gambling in New Jersey, which may start this year.
