Pat Toomey announced the nod (sub. req’d) for the Cranston mayor over incumbent RINO Sen. Lincoln Chafee. This is shaping up as a redeux of the Toomey-Specter race… that is, if there are nearly enough conservatives in Rhode Island. I’m doubtful. The more likely scenario is a brutal defeat for Laffey at the hands of R.I. establishment and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
