The three Democrat candidates for governor are in the final weeks before the primary and Clay Pell is charging strong. Rumors are circulating Pell has moved into second place behind Gina Raimondo with Angel falling back to third. Providence has been in the news lately and never seen in a good light. Violence on Federal Hill and shootings in the city seemed to have taken on toll on the Taveras campaign. Pell is spending money like crazy in a mad dash to try and catch up to Gina. Raimondo seems in control and ready to get started in the general election. Can Clay catch Gina? Follow DePetro.com for the latest.

Plead " NOLO" to charge of DUI, loss license for 3 months.
Richie is " not a bad guy", just got a DUI.
Should he be driving in the Gina " jeans" commercial?
Where is MADD?
In the new attack ad by Gina Raimondo, the star of the commercial is iron worker Richard Scalzi of Providence. DePetro.com has learned he was charged with DUI last year on August 28. Maybe that is why he was out of work ? Is this who you choose to highlight riding around the city? Someone who lost their license for 3 months and did community service? In the new commercial, Richie is seen driving around Providence and blaming Angel Taveras for lack of jobs. Attempts to get comment from the Raimondo campaign were unsuccessful. A woman answered the phone at Scalzi residence and confirmed it was him in the ad, but was silent (talking with someone in the background )and then hung up when asked about the DUI. Link to DUI
