Incumbent Democratic state office-holders in Rhode Island are asking voters for another term to finish the work they started, while Republican challengers say it’s time for a change.
Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo faces Republican Allan Fung on Tuesday. Independent Joe Trillo could act as a spoiler.
In down-ticket races, Lt. Gov. Dan McKee faces Republican Paul Pence and three other candidates. Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea faces Republican Pat Cortellessa and Treasurer Seth Magaziner is up against Republican Michael Riley.
Former U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha is the Democratic nominee for state attorney general, virtually guaranteeing him the job. Republicans didn’t put forward a candidate.
The incumbents are campaigning on their records. Their challengers say it’s time for new ideas.
Polls open in most places at 7 a.m. on Tuesday.
