Rhode Island Governor Wins Second Term
Incumbent Gov. Gina Raimondo has easily won reelection, despite a crowded field vying for her office.
Gov. Raimondo faced Republican Allan Fung, three independents, and one minor candidate who was arrested in October for possession of 48 pounds of marijuana.
Despite the crowd, Raimondo still garnered almost 53 percent of the vote, with Fung a distant second at 37 percent.
Raimondo made job creation a priority in her first term. Unemployment has dropped from the highest in the nation to being in step with the national average in her first four years.
