Rhode Island Gubernatorial Primaries

Democratic Gina Raimondo is attempting to win a 2nd term. In the 2014 gubernatorial election, she defeated Republican nominee Allan Fung by about 4.5%. A 2018 general election rematch is a distinct possibility, although both must first get past primary challengers. The centrist Raimondo is facing a more liberal opponent, former Secretary of State Matt Brown.

Rhode Island Senate Primaries

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is heavily favored to win a 3rd term in November. 

Rhode Island House Primaries

The state has two congressional districts, both held by Democrats. Both incumbents are expected to win reelection in November.
