Frank Caprio is calling on his vast network of State House insiders and Washington D.C. special interest groups to tip the election in his favor. The Providence Journal reported today that Caprio took in nearly half a million dollars this summer from out-of-state lawyers, State House lobbyists, and other Caprio associates and cronies. In addition, the national Democratic Governors Association, a Washington-based political operation aligned with the Caprio machine, is flooding the airwaves with nearly $200,000 in relentless negative attacks.
Rhode Islanders are tired of the insider deals and political machines that have controlled our state for too long. We need independent leadership. We need to end the cycle of cronyism and corruption that have damaged our economy and resulted in 12% unemployment.
I have an honest budget plan to fix our fiscal mess. I have a detailed jobs plan to get our people back to work. I have a long record of supporting education, protecting the environment and insisting on fiscal responsibility. I know that an experienced, honest and independent leader can get our great state moving in the right direction.
