Bitter primary brewing for Rhode Island’s embattled governor

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — A contentious and bitter Democratic gubernatorial primary in Rhode Island pits the state’s well-funded incumbent governor against a former secretary of state.

Gov. Gina Raimondo is vying for her second term in office and running on her record of job creation and an improving economy. Matt Brown, who served a single term more than a decade ago, has gone after Raimondo for her corporate ties.

Meanwhile, Republican Allan Fung, mayor of the state’s second-largest city, is favored to win his party’s nomination for a second time over House Minority Leader Patricia Morgan. Both support President Donald Trump.

Fung has laid low during the primary season, avoiding questions from most statewide media outlets and rolling out few detailed policy proposals. He’s walking a tightrope in a state where Trump remains deeply unpopular.
