And yes… anyone can be bought with the right amount of cash. 

Like Barry said…. “You can take that to the bank”

Let see how this douchebag back stabbed his supporters.

Governor Lincoln Chafee (I) Rhode Island said, “Yes my plan is to have an announcement about my party affiliation tomorrow (Thursday) at 10 o’clock.”

And with that Governor Chafee confirmed to the Block Island times and the rest of the political world, that he indeed will become a Democrat and run for re–election.

Democratic Providence Mayor Angel Taveras has also been eying a run for governor, but has made no decision.

Mayor Taveras said, “Right now I am focused on running the City of Providence and doing my best for the City of Providence. And the politics, we’ll have time for that later.”

(Q: So that won’t weigh in on your decision at all?”)

“It will absolutely not weigh on my decision.”

Democratic State Treasurer Gina Raimondo may also run for governor, but has made no commitment.

Moderate Ken Block is running again.

And Republican Mayor of Cranston Allan Fung is thinking about it, too.

Fung says regardless of party, Governor Chafee is vulnerable on the economy.

“Well I think ultimately the people of the State of Rhode Island are hurting, and it is the economy that everyone in this state is really looking at. You know we have to, have to make sure there are jobs for that next generation,” said Mayor Fung.

ABC6 Chief Political Analyst Buddy Cianci said, “It’s a game changer, there’s no question about it.

Cianci says, a Democratic Party free–for all could have unintended consequences.

“Perhaps the biggest winner in all of this is, Allan Fung, the Mayor of Cranston who is a Republican. Because if they have a real mix-it-up, Democratic primary with three different factions, the Republicans might have a good chance,” said Cianci.

Chafee won the governor’s race in 2010, with only 36% of the vote, in a crowded field.
