The Rhode Island Moderate Party nominee for Governor has withdrawn, and has been replaced by Robert Healey. Healey is well-known in Rhode Island because of his past political activism in the Cool Moose Party and his several runs for Lieutenant Governor. In one of those runs, in a two-person race, according to my memory, he received about 37% of the total vote.
I can’t check my records because I am on vacation and won’t be home until September 23. If Healey polls at least 5% the party will retain its qualified status for five years.
