Lt. Gov. Roberts won’t run against Chafee for governor in 2014

By Ted Nesi

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Roberts won’t be challenging independent Gov. Lincoln Chafee for Rhode Island’s top job in 2014.

“I do not see a scenario where I would run against Chafee,” Roberts, a second-term Democrat frequently mentioned as a potential candidate for governor, said Friday during a taping of WPRI 12’s “Newsmakers.” Roberts previously opted not to enter the crowded field of Democrats who tried and failed to win last year.
