In the past few elections, the RI Republican Party never wanted to run for US Congress. By the grace of God, Allan Fung has decided to run for US House RI-2. I wish Allan the best of luck.
The RI Republican Party has decided to endorse Allan Waters for RI-2. This is taking a knee in the election. It is too late for the Republican Party to un-endorse him, like in 2020. I could stay in the election and, with a ton of money and effort, perhaps even defeat him in the primary. But why?
I realize that I would not defeat David Cicilline for RI-1 in 2022. My purpose in this election is to build RI name recognition to defeat Sheldon Whitehouse in the 2024 elections. I don't want to squander resources in 2022. So I will spare my efforts in this election cycle.
Since, like Bob Lancia, Allen Waters is not a serious candidate (a candidate designed to win), I wish David Cicilline the best of luck in fighting for the welfare of Rhode Islanders.
