DON'T LET THE FACTS GET IN THE WAY

By now you've heard all about Governor Gina Raimdono's anti Allan Fung TV ad that featured footage of boarded up business in Providence instead of Cranston...whoops. A pair of party leaders appeared on Ch 12 Newsmakers over the weekend with the Democrat pointing out Fung tried to sell a 2014 TV ad that was shot inside an Ohio diner as a Cranston eatery...so there. Let's talk about content for a second and not the visuals. Both Raimondo and Fung have TV ads running accusing each other of being the reason BENNY'S closed. Now THAT'S a stretch. You can expect these accusations to ramp up to a feverish height by the time we get to election day. Meantime, after a rather bitter and negative Democratic  primary, Matt Brown DID follow up on his pre-vote promise to support Raimondo should she win. However, Patricia Morgan, who lost to Allan Fung but generated close to 40% of the GOP primary, has yet to commit to endorsing Fung and I won't be surprised if she doesn't. THAT could hurt Fung and swing anti-Raimondo votes to Indy Joe Trillo.
