Pell Gains Traction in Rhode Island

Ted Nesi: "Could Clay Pell win the Democratic nomination for governor on Sept. 9? No small number of people have scoffed at that suggestion. But with 50 days to go before the primary - and nearly $1 million in Pell TV ads saturating the airwaves - there's reason to think the 32-year-old political newcomer has a real, if still unlikely, shot at victory."

"The evidence for a Pell surge is anecdotal at this point because there's been no public polling in the race since a May WPRI 12/Providence Journal survey that put Providence Mayor Angel Taveras at 33%, General Treasurer Gina Raimondo at 29% and Pell far behind at 12%. But WPRI 12 political analyst Joe Fleming, who conducted the poll, suggested the next survey may show some movement."
