RI GOP should fire Smiley

Dumb and dumber

The Rhode Island Republicans need to take care of some business before they gear up for the 2014 elections. The RI-GOP needs to get rid of " dumb and dumber".  Chairman Mark Smiley should  be removed after the " rifle raffle " fiasco which has made the party of the laughing stock of local politics. The poor judgement shown by  Smiley is a major " red flag" for what is to come during the next campaign cycle. Major campaign donors will shy away from any type of "real money" to flow into the hands of this amateur operation. Serious candidates will hesitate to put their political future in the hands of such a clueless bunch. The party needs to make changes, or gear up for another losing effort in the year ahead.  Mistakes are bound to happen in any political campaign, but the experience and ability to identify the mistakes and rectify them are crucial to have any type of success. Mayor Alan Fung and Senator Dawson Hodgeson should have the proper clout to have more of a say in the direction of the state party, as opposed to the gang that cannot " shoot straight".

Will Raimondo run as the "Independent woman"?

Independent Woman?

Is the "path to victory " independent in November?

Why face Angel in a primary?

Rumors continue to swirl that General Treasurer Gina Raimondo may leave the Democrat party and run for Governor as an Independent. Raimondo would be strong on the ballot in November but would first need to get past Mayor Angel Taveras in a primary. Angel has the unions and  the voters of Providence . Providence voters make up  to 25% of the voters in a  Democrat primary. Raimondo has no problem raising money and may decide she can live with out the union faction of the party. No need to run as a Republican since the party is too busy shooting themselves. The key for Raimondo is to get on the ballot in November where she will pull big numbers from all voters. What happens to Fung? How would this impact Angel? What about Ken Block? Follow DePetro.com for the latest on 2014.

Why deal with this?

No primary?

"Cowboy " Caprio tells Gina to " shove it"

GunSlinger Caprio 

Former treasurer attacks the treasurer.

Caprio uses union" talking points" on pension.

Democrat attacks Democrat.

Welcome Back Frank Caprio. Caprio wasted no time in announcing a run for his old office, yet sounded more like he was again running for governor. The former General Treasurer attacked the current Treasurer Gina Raimondo, and sounded more like a union official as opposed to fellow democrat. What if Gina is the Democrat Candidate for governor? Caprio came out guns blaring making it known he has no time or patience to be " mister nice guy".  Caprio announced he will be " self funded" but attacked Raimondo with the same union talking points regarding the pension issue. Is he now with the unions? Frank Caprio has put the media on notice he will be involved with both the race for Governor and General Treasurer.

Gina Raimondo. In Gina we trust.

Fox to stay in the henhouse

Gordon stays 

Speaker Gordon Fox has announced he will not run for Mayor of Providence and instead continue to destroy the state from Smith Hill. Fox, who is being investigated by the state ethics commission , seem to be drooling at the thought of extorting huge sums of money from the capital city. Speaker Fox is the most powerful man in the state, and also one of the most corrupt and incompetent . Under Fox, the state has high unemployment and is not friendly to business. None of that matters to the greedy,self serving Fox, who uses his law practice as a way to pad his bank account.
