Taveras

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."

"My opponent wants to throw stones from On High," Taveras contnues. "I want to build a better future from the ground up."

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?

Man with a Plan

The Brett Smiley for Mayor campaign has launched one of the most enjoyable TV ads. The problem may be that it appeals to his base and may be tone deaf to the issues of jobs, potholes and crime.

Folks in Providence may be looking for action rather than plans.

Block's 3-2-1

Like Smiley, Block comes out early with a "plan" ad. For Rhode Islanders suffering through the worse economy in the country and the highest unemployment patience for plans may run thin.

Pell hides behind his wife's skirt and she delivers that ole fake war on women 'dog whistle' message of inequality...blah blah blah,what a joke.
Pell is such an underwhelming candidate with no real credentials so he needs his wife to sell him. The reality is..Pell is an empty shirt and a clone of Chafee and if he is elected this state will come to a screeching halt..he will continue the same bad economic policies and the same pandering to special interest union groups. Pell commercials are eye appealing with no substance, but low information Rhode Island voters are always attracted to bright,shiny things that move.This is the same advertising formula used to sell Obama to America.."ALL SHOW NO GO"

No experience, no consideration. Namesake and celebrity wife are not qualification to lead RI out of the no Jobs and the continued economic downward spiral our last "go along to get along" national Democrat Governor drove us through. It's time to turn this dismal situation around with some new thinking.

The no experience, and using the family name are one thing, aligning himself with the teachers' unions is the REALLY troubling part.

If he is not taking outside PAC money, how will he be able to keep up with his running mates?

His strategy is like Governor Gump, split the votes and take hope to be the higher of all. If this happens, Democrats have to vote Republican or we are all in for another long term of nothing.
