Former state treasuer Frank Caprio is trying to win back his old job. After losing a race for governor in 2010, Caprio is one of two Democrats running in the September 9 primary to succeed outgoing Treasurer Gina Raimondo, who is running for governor. And as he told Rhode Island Public Radio political reporter Ian Donnis, Caprio insists he will be a more transparent treasurer than Raimondo. The two talked as part of our Rhody Votes coverage of the 2014 election.
