Rhode Island results for every midterm race
Rhode Island is solidly Democratic, but Raimondo isn’t terribly popular. According to a recent Morning Consult poll, 44 percent of residents approve of her, and 47 percent disapprove. She successfully fielded off a primary challenge from leftist candidate Matt Brown, Rhode Island’s former secretary of state.
Raimondo and Fung faced off in 2014, and Fung narrowly lost. There’s a bit of a wild card this time with Trumpy independent candidate Joseph Trillo potentially splitting the Republican vote (this would likely benefit Raimondo).
Rhode Island’s US Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D) is also up for reelection and facing challenger Bob Flanders, but the race isn’t expected to be competitive.
Rhode Island also has a rare Democratic trifecta — as Democrats also control the state House of Representatives and state Senate. That is not expected to change today per Daily Kos, when every seat in both chambers is on the ballot.
President Trump is unpopular here, like in much of the rest of the Northeastern seaboard, with Morning Consult finding his disapproval rating above 60 percent.
