Gina Raimondo, RI's General Treasurer and architect of pension reform, made it official today that she is running for Governor of Rhode Island.

In a video posted to YouTube with the comment section disabled, Raimondo stakes her claim to the Governor's office. Raimondo was celebrated when she first came to office and drove through the legislature a massive pension reform, but more recently has come under fire for investments in hedge funds.

The hedge fund strategy has been the target of criticism by unions and Rolling Stones star reporter Matt Taibbi.

In addition, AFSCME has hired forensic auditor Ted Siedle who issued a report calling for an SEC investigation of Raimondo's investment strategies and the fees paid.
