Sgouros suspends campaign, backs Raimondo

April 29, 2010

Democratic candidate for state treasurer Tom Sgouros says he’s suspending his campaign and putting his support behind rival Gina Raimondo:

“We agree about too many things for me to take pleasure in the prospect of a campaign against her,” said Sgouros.

“Our state suffers from a shortage of advocates for sensible public policy. Rhode Island will be better served by having another advocate for smarter government in the arena with me than by having two of us battle it out in a primary. I welcome Gina to the community of people trying to change politics in Rhode Island. She will make the treasurer’s office into a source of exciting policy innovations, and I expect great things from her. I will happily vote for her in September’s primary, and I hope everyone else will, too.”
