Yup, that would be 9 Republican candidates, and only 4 Democrat ones. Not bad for a virtually non-existent Republican Party. 😉

There is another sign that Republicans did very well while collecting the signatures of Rhode Island voters in December. Of the seven candidates who submitted more than 2,000 certified signatures, five were Repubicans. It is also easy to see that voter interest in this year’s presidential primary is unusally high. In 2004, just one candidate — President Bush — exceeded 2,000 signatures. To see the final signature tallies of every candidate, visit<>.
