Mark Zaccaria was a 2014 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate from Rhode Island.[1] Mark Zaccaria lost the general election on November 4, 2014.

Zaccaria, who ran unsuccessfully for Rhode Island's 2nd Congressional District twice, said he knew that it would be difficult to unseat the well-funded, popular Sen. Jack Reed. He added, “I don’t think my campaign is going to be remarkably different. I’m not a different person. I think the message is going to hit more fertile ground this time than it did in the past.”[2][3]
