Rhode Island’s Dem Gov. Candidate Says Obama “Can Take HisEndorsement and Shove It”

The Democratic Party’s nominee for governor of Rhode Island had some harsh words for the President Obama, who has withheld an endorsement in the race because ally Lincoln Chafee is running as an independent.

“I never asked President Obama for his endorsement and what’s going on here is really Washington insider politics at its worst,” nominee Frank Caprio said on a radio interview, ABC News reports. “He can take his endorsement and really shove it as far as I am concerned.”

In 2008, Obama carried Rhode Island by 28 points. The three-way governor’s race this year is currently a dead heat between Chafee and Caprio, with Republican candidate John Robitaille further behind.
