Former state Rep. Spencer Dickinson (D) “has announced plans and filed initial paperwork to run. … Dickinson has launched a website for his campaign, spencerdickinson.com.”
“Dickinson said he is running to give competition to Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) … and provide an alternative for Democratic voters. … [H]e otherwise would be inclined to support” Cranston Mayor Allan Fung (R).
Dickinson: “I don’t see a Democrat stepping up to run who is somebody that I could support or who could do the job.” (South County Independent)
