Amer­ica Works USA, a non­profit foun­ded by the Demo­crat­ic Gov­ernors As­so­ci­ation in 2011, on Fri­day ran “an ad tout­ing Gov. Gina Rai­mondo’s (D) ef­forts to ex­pand job train­ing and ‘in­vest in the middle class’ that ended with a pitch to sup­port ‘The Col­lege Plan,’ her ef­fort for the state to pay two years of col­lege tu­ition for in-state stu­dents at state col­leges.” (Provid­ence Journ­al)

The RGA said Fri­day that “Rai­mondo is tak­ing heat for her ties to a firm that was awar­ded a luc­rat­ive no-bid con­tract by the Rhode Is­land State Po­lice,” cit­ing “a new ed­it­or­i­al by the Provid­ence Journ­al.” (re­lease)

An RGA-linked polit­ic­al non­profit, State Solu­tions, has also at­tacked Rai­mondo’s re­cord on jobs on­line.

The group is also tar­get­ing Govs. Tom Wolf (D) of Pennsyl­van­nia and Kate Brown (D) of Ore­gon, who are also up for reelec­tion in 2018. (Hot­line re­port­ing)
