In 2014, then-state Treasurer Gina Raimondo (D) won a tight 41-36-21% victory over Cranston Mayor Allan Fung (R) and Independent Bob Healey to become Rhode Island’s governor. A new WPRI 12 News/Roger Williams University survey (7/28-31; 407 RI likely general election voters) finds the Governor leading Mr. Fung by only a 39-37% margin for the 2018 re-match.
Both individuals face credible primary opposition in the late September 12th primary election, so the two again facing each other in November is not guaranteed. Still, it appears that this gubernatorial campaign will see many twists and turns before voters finally decide who will lead the state during the next four years.
