Primary day is two weeks from Tuesday in Rhode Island -- see who's gotten endorsed from which labor groups below.

"Endorsements may have some psychological impact on candidates, both those endorsed and those who failed to be endorsed, but I doubt that many voters are impacted by them," said veteran Rhode Island pollster Victor Profughi.  "Their greatest value might be assistance in fundraising and leaving the impression of gaining momentum.  Party endorsements may have some limited value in some areas of the state in primaries but even in primaries they can cut both ways."
