BREAKING: Gemma Announces on Helen Glover, “95% chance I am running” against Cicilline

Thursday, December 15, 2011

 

This morning on WHJJ 920's Helen Glover show, businessman Anthony Gemma said that he is 95% sure that he will challenge first-term Congressman David Cicilline for the Democratic nomination in the 1st Congressional District. Cicilline has come under fire for his management of the City of Providence's finances while he was Mayor and more recently he has been criticized for trying to manipulate the redistricting process. The latest proprosed district would move the majority of Providence (including South Providence) to the 1st District, a change that would likely benefit the Congressman.

A formal Gemma announcement would pit the more conservative Gemma against the embattled Cicilline.

The winner would face the winner of the GOP primary pitting former State Representative and Iraq War veteran John Loughlin (who narrowly lost to Cicilline last November) against former State Police Col. Brendan Doherty.
