Breaking, breaking. Four bells ! Stop the Presses ! Hold the delivery trucks ! Keep the line open for paradigm-shattering bulletins:
Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo (D, 2015- , Gen. Treas., 2011-14) announced today that she will seek re-election to her current job. (Not a gigantic surprise since half her staff seem to have been working on promoting her, while the former investment banker has been to cocktail hours and fund-raisers for herself all over the country.)
Also today, former U.S. Sen., Gov. and presidential candidate Lincoln Chafee (GOP Sen. 1999-2006; Ind. Gov. 2011-14; Dem. pres. cand 2016) announced that he will NOT seek to regain his old seat in the U.S, Senate in this year’s Democratic primary or general election, instead endorsing the man who unseated him in 2006, former U.S. Atty & R.I. Atty-Gen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D).
