Raimondo stockpiles more than $1.8 million for re-election campaign

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Governor Gina Raimondo continues to stockpile campaign cash as she prepares to run for re-election next year.

In a filing with the R.I. Board of Elections late Tuesday night, Raimondo said she raised more than $300,000 during the final three months of 2016.

That amount brings her campaign war chest to more than $1.8 million, which is much more than any other Rhode Island politician has at the state level.
