Exclusive to GoLocalProv: House Speaker Gordon Fox Endorses Cicilline for Congress
Wednesday, April 28, 2010
In a one-on-one interview with GoLocalProv's Tracey Minkin, House Speaker Gordon Fox announced his endorsement of Providence Mayor David Cicilline for the First Congressional District. This comes as a surprising, early endorsement in the campaign cycle, and will no doubt boost Cicilline's campaign statewide. Speakers in Rhode Island politics have traditionally refrained from endorsements during their parties' primary seasons; the effects of Fox's announcement may be felt keenly at former Democratic State Party Chairman Bill Lynch campaign headquarters.
