Mayoral Candidate Proposes to Girlfriend During Debate


Chris Young, a candidate for the mayor of Providence (who is described by a local news station as “Rhode Island’s perennial gadfly candidate,” so he probably isn’t a major contender), decided to spice up last night’s debate by proposing to his longtime girlfriend (and campaign manager) during his closing statement, ring and all. Interestingly enough, this is only the second-strangest thing Young has done during a debate this summer, as well as the second-strangest thing he has done this week.
