RI-01 2012 Tag

David Cicilline, my current Congressman and former Mayor of Providence, has been a frequent topic here for the past two years, ever since he stole the 2010 congressional race by covering up and being "untruthful" (the Providence Journal's word) about the dismal state of Providence's...

It's crunch time everywhere, but I want to call your attention again to the race in Rhode Island's 1st congressional district, my home district. While a couple of public polls showed incumbent Democrat David Cicilline up by low single digits, this race is much tighter. This is...

There are a number of flip opportunities, just check out the Operation Counterweight Final List. But this one would be special, getting rid of David Cicilline in my home District in favor of Brendan Doherty: The latest polling showed Cicilline with a single digit lead within the...

I posted yesterday about the race between David Cicilline (D RI-01) and Republican Brendan Doherty. Cicilline has managed to pull into a small lead because of an over-the-top Mediscare campaign and faded memories of Cicilline's cover-up of Providence's financial disaster. The Doherty campaign has just launched a...

I have warned you that former Providence Mayor and current Congressman David Ciciline is one of the most effective Mediscare mongers. In his 2010 run for Congress, during which he lied about the abysmal finances of Providence in order to get elected, Cicilline ran a bus tour of Senior...

Little would surprise me when it comes to former Providence Mayor and since 2010 congressman David Cicilline. But massive voter fraud? That's what Cicilline's Democratic primary challenger Anthony Gemma alleged at a press conference today.  Via The Providence Journal: Congressional candidate Anthony Gemma alleged Wednesday that a private...

David Cicilline, the former Mayor of Providence and current Democratic congressman from my home district RI-01, is in deep electoral trouble because he lied about Providence's abysmal finances during the 2010 congressional race.  He has apologized for lying. With Providence on the verge of bankruptcy, Cicilline...

I have posted numerous times about David Cicilline, former Providence Mayor and current Democratic congressman in my home district, RI-01. As I previously noted, Cicilline deliberately concealed the terrible financial condition of Providence during the 2010 election in a close fight with Republican John Loughlin: In June 2010, when...

One of my focus races is the attempt by Republican Brendan Doherty to unseat Democrat David Cicilline in RI-01, my home district. Cicilline is very unpopular due to the mess he left behind when he was the Mayor of Providence.  While Cicilline was able to hide...

The City of Providence, in my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is in dire financial trouble, as I have posted here many times before. The City, with its large tax-exempt university base and decades-long history of lush public sector benefits, has struggled under...

I previously have posted about the RI-01 congressional race, which is my home district, a seat currently held by Democratic former Providence Mayor David Cicilline. Cicilline concealed Providence financial problems until after the 2010 election.  Cicilline ran a "scare grandma" campaign, making a tour of senior centers...

I have posted many times before about David Cicilline, former Mayor of Providence who hid the city's financial problems during the 2010 election, and ran a scare grandma campaign, allowing him a relatively (for Rhode Island) narrow win over John Loughlin in my home RI-01...
