Rhode Island primary election results 2010
The Associated Press called the GOP Gov. primary race for John Robitaille.
As the AP reported:
Robitaille is a former communications aide to outgoing Republican Gov. Don Carcieri (kuh-CHEER'-ee). He defeated former state Rep. Victor Moffitt on Tuesday for the party's nomination. Robitaille proposes tax cuts and a constitutional amendment to limit property tax increases. He joins a crowded field in the general election including Democrat Frank Caprio, independent Lincoln Chafee and Moderate Party founder Ken Block are all running.
But in the end, the primary didn't really matter -- this is a race between Caprio and Lincoln Chafee. Neither GOP candidate raised significant money for the race, and the one-time Republican Chafee seems to be benefiting from the lack of a qualified alternative from his former party.
