Daniel…..Rhode Island Governor: State Treasurer Frank Caprio (D-RI) closes gap; Moves into a tie with former Senator & Independent Candidate Lincoln Chaffee (I-RI)

Hello Folks!

Rhode Island State Treasurer Frank Caprio (D-RI) has closed the once double digit gap with former Senator & Independent Candidate Lincoln Chaffee (I-RI). Both now running neck-and-neck with 33 % of the Vote according to a new Statewide Survey in the Ocean State. Republican John Robitaille (R-RI) who is a former Aide to current Governor Donald L. “Don” Carcieri (R-RI) trails with 21 % of the Vote.

To be honest I’m a little bit surprised that Chaffee’s lead has vanished considering the still strong Public Anger at both Major Parties.
