NEW: John Robitaille will Not Run for Governor in 2014
Wednesday, December 19, 2012
Robitaille confirmed his decision on Twitter.
“To my friends & supporters, I will not be a candidate for Governor of RI in 2014,” Robitaille tweeted. “It was a difficult decision but its the right one for me.”
Robitaille finished second in a four-way race in 2010, ahead of Democratic nominee Frank Caprio and Moderate Party candidate Ken Block, but behind Governor Lincoln Chafee.
The Republican’s decision not to run will likely set off speculation that popular Cranston Mayor Allan Fung may run for the office.
