NEW: Statement by Speaker Fox on Chafee Joining Dems
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
“The Democratic Party has always been about inclusion, so I am certainly pleased that Governor Chafee has joined our ranks. I have not had the opportunity to discuss his decision and his future plans, but I look forward to talking about it with him soon. I have enjoyed an excellent personal relationship with the Governor and he has always been a true gentleman."
“The 2014 Governor’s race is a long way off. My sole focus at this time is on our legislative session, developing a responsible budget, and enacting meaningful and bold economic development legislation that moves our state forward.”
