Know Better

A new TV ad by Angel Taveras throws a counter punch at Democratic primary opponent Gina Raimondo for her ad criticizing his economic record as mayor of Providence.

"You've probably seen that ad where Treasurer Raimondo is blaming me for Rhode Island's economy," Taveras says.  "We know better. The state was already struggling when the Wall Street crash made it worse."

Raimondo: Ironworker

A new TV ad by Gina Raimondo is a direct negative hit on Angel Taveras. The ad questions Taveras' record in Providence and his ability to lead.

Is this an act of a desperate Raimondo or the first step to openning up a lead?

Biggest question is do voters leave Taveras to go to Raimondo or will they all shift to Pell?
