Warwick, RI – Today, Republican Party of Rhode Island Chairman Joe Powers released the following statement on today’s Primary Election results:
“I want to congratulate Gerry Leonard and Niyoka Powell for stepping up to hold Democrats accountable. This November, Rhode Islanders will have an opportunity to elect newcomers to Washington, D.C., and Smith Hill. Now, more than ever, Rhode Islanders deserve leaders who will put the needs of working families ahead of special interests.
For too long, entrenched career politicians have left Rhode Island working families behind. It is time we elect leaders that represent our communities and will fight to bring much-needed relief and common-sense solutions to the Ocean State and the course correction it so desperately needs.”
