Another Republican Candidate for Governor?
Cynthia Needham of the Projo has the first official gubernatorial-race interview with Rory Smith, the political newcomer with a possible interest in running as a Republican for Governor of Rhode Island…
Providence businessman Rory Smith says he’s considering a run for Rhode Island governor in 2010 as a Republican.
“People have approached me about it and I’m certainly thinking about it, but I have not made any decisions yet,” Smith said in a brief interview Wednesday afternoon.
The East Greenwich resident and self-described “outsider” said he has not set a deadline to make that decision and declined to discuss his potential candidacy in any detail.
