WEST WARWICK â Residents in the area believe they have a big decision to make in November as far as who will be Rhode Islandâs next governor.
Candidates seeking nomination in the Democratic primary include Rhode Island General Treasurer Gina Raimondo, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, Todd Giroux and Clay Pell; meanwhile, Republican primary candidates include Cranston Mayor Allan Fung and Ken Block.
