House Speaker Gordon Fox Wins Re-Election

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

 

House Speaker Gordon Fox had to sweat for a little while, but he cruised to victory at the MLK school and held on to his District 4 seat over Independent Mark Binder.

Fox, who is arguably the most powerful politician in Rhode Island, came under fire for his role in helping to bring Curt Schilling's 38 Studios to Rhode Island and

Binder made the failed video game company a central theme of his campaign. Binder also enlisted former Fox ally Jeff Britt to run a campaign that was viewed as too close to call heading into the final days.

Last weekend, Fox, who is openly gay, brought in former Congressman Patrick Kennedy to help rally same-sex marriage supporters in the district. Fox has pledged to bring gay marriage to a vote by the end of January 2013, which leave it to the Senate to ultimately decide on the legislation.
