Will Michelle Kwan be Rhode Island's next First Lady?

Rhode Island Royalty

Next First Lady of RI?

The Heir to the throne.

Pell is Rhode Island Royalty.

No medal for second place in race.

Will Clay Pell become the next Governor of a Rhode Island? Is Michelle Kwan ready to become the First Lady ? The royal power couple is set to embark on an adventure of becoming the Royal couple of the biggest little. Michelle Kwan has international appeal and would be a huge draw on the campaign trail. Rhode Island is fascinated by celebrity,( ask Taylor Swift) and a power couple like the Pell's could skate into office. People still talk about meeting "John John " back in 1988 when he campaigned for his cousin ,Patrick Kennedy. A young "Royal couple " would make the people in West Warwick and Pawtucket feel like they have their own version of William and Kate. Follow DePetro.com for the latest on the race for 2014.

1988 beat Skeffinton

Welcome to RI


When Unions attack

Gina is not afraid
Paid over $20,000 to attack Gina

Unions go for Raimondo throat.

Sending info to SEC...

Unions claim Raimondo "license to steal."

It is going to be a bloody war for governor 2014. The unions opened fire on General Treasurer Gina Raimondo , with a scathing 106 page " hack attack " authored by " gun for hire" Ted Siedele.The paid attack . The unions are terrified of Gina and will stop at nothing to crush her in defeat. Raimondo shows no signs of backing down and told WPRO's John DePetro that she will have an announcement before the end of the year. This is going to be a war. Follow DePetro.com for the latest. 

Send in the clowns

Here comes Clay Pell

The royal couple with the POTUS

Will Pell " bridge " the gap with voters?

Leaves his job for Rhode Island.

Raimondo, Taveras, Pell for Democrat  primary?

Clay Pell has left his job and seems headed to Rhody to run for Governor in 2014. The Grandson of beloved Senator Pell and his celebrity wife are expected to live in Providence so he can run in the Democrat primary next year. This is a nightmare for Providence Mayor Angel Taveras. Clay Pell in the race kills Angel as it would seem the two men would split the vote and pave the way for Gina. The liberal elite will ditch Angel for Clay. After all, he is a Pell. Not many people travel over a bridge with their name on it.

The legend

Was Clay " born" to be Governor?

Rhody royalty

Does the Pell name still matter?

What does this do to Angel? Gina says " no prob".

Will Pell be " granted" a campaign win?

Clay Pell seems like a nice guy who would like to be named a king or prince. The question now is whether he will run for Governor of Rhode Island. Pell is the Grandson of the late Senator Pell, a legend in the Democrat party. If Clay decides to run, this hurts Mayor Angel in a three-way primary. The two men would split the vote and clear the way for Gina Raimondo.  Follow DePetro.com for the latest on the 2014 race. The Pell legend.

Republican Mayor effort shot down in election

Bullet of bad news 

Republicans misfire helping  Fountaine in Woonsocket.

Assault Rifle raffle claims first victim.

Fung/ Block ticket for 2014? 

Where was Smiley? Home on the range?

Woonsocket becomes RI-GOP Alamo.


The Rhode Island Republican Party had quite a gun party when they should have been on the streets of Woonsocket helping Mayor Leo Fountaine . The RI-GOP are on the verge of losing an important city to a democrat, with the race for governor 12 months away. The GOP has been helped having Republican mayors in Warwick, Cranston and Woonsocket.   Fountaine campaign workers needed help with the election but were pushed aside for the raffle.  Where was Chairman Smiley? Why did they not use the press coverage they received to help Mayor Leo? The republicans " thanked" the media for selling out the raffle, but  they should have directed the attention to help the race in Woonsocket. Having a Republican mayor in Woonsocket is valuable to a struggling party and all efforts should have been made to help Fountaine. The gang that " cannot shoot straight" continues to misfire. The party needs to convince Dougherty, Loughlin, Hinckley , Robitaille and Sue Stenhouse to run for some elected office in 2014. Alan Fung and Dawson Hodgeson cannot do it alone, and should not be set up as " sacrificial lambs".The Republicans cannot afford to be a party of " one run and done", like waking up with a bad hangover.  Mike Stenhouse should be courted to run for either Mayor of Cranston or to run against Langevin. All efforts should be made to get Ken Block to run for LT. governor on a ticket with Mayor Fung. Now is the window of opportunity. The country and state are a mess. If not now, then when?

. Nice job in woonsocket
