Republican John Robitaille is expected to endorse businessman Ken Block for Governor in the upcoming primary. Robitaille ran for Governor in 2010, losing narrowly to then-independent Lincoln Chafee.  Block also ran in that election, as a Moderate.  Robitaille is scheduled to make his endorsement at the Statehouse later today.

Both the Republican and democratic primaries are on September 9th.
