Primary set for Sept. 12

Three Democrats and three Republicans will vie for their party’s gubernatorial nomination during Wednesday’s primary.

The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 12 at the recreation center, 41 Conanicus Ave., and Lawn School, 55 Lawn Ave. The election was moved from Tuesday because of Rosh Hashanah. There are no local primary races.

For governor, incumbent Gina Raimondo will be challenged by fellow Democrats Spencer Dickinson and Matthew Brown. Cranston Mayor Allan W. Fung, the GOP’s choice in 2014, is competing against Giovanni Feroce and Patricia Morgan on the Republican ticket.

Democrats also will decide between incumbent Daniel McKee and Aaron Regunberg for lieutenant governor.

In the race to represent the 1st Congressional District, incumbent David Cicilline will be challenged by Christopher Young on the Democratic side. The GOP ballot pits Patrick Donovan against Frederick Wysocki.

Finally, U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a two-term Democratic incumbent, is being challenged by party mate Patricia Fontes. Republicans vying for Whitehouse’s seat are Robert Flanders and Rocky De La Fuente.
