Filing deadline report: Six third-party candidates jump into Rhode Island Gubernatorial race

Rhode Island

By Garrett Fortin

Providence, Rhode Island: Five state executive positions are up for election in 2014 in the state of Rhode Island: governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state and treasurer.

The primary election is scheduled for September 9, 2014. Rhode Island is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Unaffiliated voters may vote in a party's primary, but they will then be considered affiliated with that party. In order to disaffiliate, they must file a "Change of Party Designation" form.[1]

Only one incumbent is seeking re-election:

The incumbent treasurer, Gina Raimondo, is running for governor while incumbent Governor Lincoln Chafee is stepping down, leaving an open seat. Two other incumbents, Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Roberts and Secretary of State Ralph Mollis are term-limited.

On Wednesday, June 25, the filing period for major party primary candidates came to a close. The following list of candidates is current as of June 27, 2014.

A total of 29 candidates filed for the 5 offices - 6 Republicans, 12 Democrats, 1 Libertarian, 2 Moderate Party candidates and 8 Independent or other party candidates.

The 2014 Oklahoma primary elections were held on June 24, 2014. Of the four contested primaries for statewide executive offices, only the Democratic nomination for superintendent will be decided in a primary runoff on August 26. The biggest event of the night, though, was the overwhelming victory of Joy Hofmeister, a Republican candidate for superintendent, over the incumbent, Janet Barresi. Hofmeister won more than 50% of the vote and avoided a runoff while pushing Barresi into third place behind another candidate, Brian S. Kelly.
