RINO Lincoln Chafee wins the Republican Primary 54–46% over his conservative rival Cranston Mayor Steve Laffey. This puts quite a damper on the Democrats hopes to pick up the RI Senate seat in the general election in November. This seat will stay Republican.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Chafee had 34,042 votes, or 54 percent, to Cranston Mayor Steve Laffey’s 29,431 votes, or 46 percent.
This race was touted as being close by the pollsters and MSM. Eight percentage points is hardly a close election. Wonder how many other political races have skewed polls talked up by the MSM?
