Incumbent Democratic Gov. Dan McKee is seeking his first full term. The former lieutenant governor succeeded Gina Raimondo (D) in March, 2021. Raimondo resigned after being confirmed as U.S. Secretary of Commerce. 

McKee faces several primary challengers and is not a sure bet to be renominated. His closest challenger in this five-person field appears to be Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea. Also seeing notable support is businesswoman Helena Foulkes. There isn't much polling to go on; both McKee and Gorbea have led surveys, but generally within the margin of error.

Whoever emerges will be favored in November against the winner of the GOP primary.

U.S. House

These primaries will take place using redistricted boundaries. The shapes changed very little from those in use over the past decade.

Democratic Rep. David Cicilline is unchallenged for renomination in District 1 and is expected to win a 7th term in November. Two Republicans are seeking the party's nomination.

In District 2, Democrat Jim Langevin is retiring after 11 terms. Several candidates are on the Democratic ballot to try and succeed him. The frontrunner is State Treasurer Seth Magaziner, who has been endorsed by Langevin

The GOP field has cleared for Allan Fung, the former Mayor of Cranston. He is unopposed for the nomination. Fung was also the GOP nominee for governor in both 2014 and 2018. A Republican hasn't won a U.S. House seat in Rhode Island since 1992, but the general election is shaping up to be competitive.
