Rhode Island Primary Results

September 10, 2014

The Rhode Island nominating primaries for the 2014 election were held on September 9.   

Governor:  State Treasurer Gina Raimondo defeated Providence Mayor Angel Taveras and Clay Pell to win the Democratic primary.  On the Republican side, Cranston Mayor Allan Fung defeated Ken Block.   This race, to fill the seat of the retiring Lincoln Chafee, leans Democratic as we look toward November, although no general election polling is yet available.

Senate:  Incumbent Jack Reed (D) will meet Marketing Consultant Mark Zaccaria in November; both won uncontested primaries.   Reed is a heavy favorite to be reelected; our Senate simulator currently shows a a <99% probability.

US House: All vote totals can be seen here.    Both Congressional districts are safely Democratic.
