The Candidate Doth Protest Too Much?


“I never asked President Obama for his endorsement and what’s going on here is really Washington insider politics at its worst. He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I am concerned.” —Frank Caprio, the Democratic nominee for the governor of Rhode Island, after being informed by a reporter that President Obama wouldn’t endorse him when he visited the state today, out of deference to Independent gubernatorial candidate Lincoln Chafee, who supported Obama’s presidential run in 2008.
