Gov. Gina Rai­mondo (D) con­firmed in a brief in­ter­view at the Na­tion­al Gov­ernors As­so­ci­ation meet­ing in Wash­ing­ton that she does “plan to run” to seek an­oth­er term in 2018 but didn’t of­fer a timeline on an of­fi­cial kick­off. (Hot­line re­port­ing)

FAST FOR­WARD. Rep. Jim Langev­in (D-02) “said he wouldn’t rule out a run for gov­ernor of Rhode Is­land in the fu­ture,” but not against Rai­mondo.

Langev­in: “I cer­tainly wouldn’t rule out a run for gov­ernor at some point in the fu­ture, but right now I’m fo­cused on do­ing my job in Con­gress.”

“Langev­in’s soon­est chance for a gubernat­ori­al run would be in 2022 – the same year Rhode Is­land’s two U.S. House seats could be re­duced to one due to stag­nant pop­u­la­tion growth.” (WPRI)
