Lincoln Chafee, the former GOP Senator turned Independent candidate for Governor of Rhode Island, announced a new endorsement today.
A statement issued by the Chafee campaign said: “Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, will travel to Rhode Island Thursday to deliver an endorsement to independent gubernatorial candidate Lincoln Chafee. They will make joint appearances in Warwick and Providence between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., with details to be announced on Wednesday.”
Chafee is in a close race with Democrat Frank Caprio. Bloomberg, of course, is the Independent mayor of New York City. Although he claims he has zero intentions of running for President or other office in 2012, Bloomberg has been unusually active in campaigning for candidates nationwide.
