poll: GOP Primary: Loughlin or Doherty

Saturday, May 07, 2011

 

If the GOP primary for the first Cong. Dist. were held today, who would you vote for?


John Loughlin came within just five points of beating David Cicilline in the 2010 general election to succeed Patrick Kennedy and win the1st Congressional seat. Now, with just 18 months until the next election a GOP primary may be brewing. Former Supt. of the RI State Police may be eyeing the seat and Loughlin who is return to military service in Iraq is looking for a second run.

While Doherty is new to elected politics he had a strong reputation in the State Police and made points with conservatives when he resigned his post for not supporting Governor Lincoln Chafee's immigration policy.

The showdown for the GOP would be big - it could pit two credible Republicans against each other. Both capable of running effective races against the embattled Cicilline.

If you were voting in the GOP primary in the 1st Cong. District who would you support?
