Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), who has lashed out repeatedly at Republicans and the Tea Party movement, is up for reelection. Whitehouse has a lot of money in the bank, and surely will use his connections to the White House in the campaign, but is vulnerable.
Hinckley was interviewed on the Helen Glover Show. Take a listen, because you will be hearing more about this race in the coming year. (At the 27:30 mark he gives his views on the presidential contenders, I think you’ll find it of interest.)

Update: In other RI political news, it looks like there will be primary challengers to David Cicilline (D-RI), the former Mayor of Providence who left the city in a fiscal mess and is highly unpopular now.
