Anthony Gemma

Welcome to TGIF, my new Friday column. As always, feel free to send your tips and thoughts to idonnis (at) ripr (dot) org.

In a resounding show of support from 1st District Democratic primary voters, Congressman David Cicilline swamped  businessman Anthony Gemma to win renomination, establishing  a strong foundation for a general election showdown against Republican Brendan Doherty, of Cumberland, the former state police superintendent.

Here’s a look at where the CD1 campaigns will be Tuesday night:

David Cicilline:

U.S. Congressman David Cicilline will join supporters for a primary night watch party at Blaze Restaurant, 776 Hope Street in Providence. Doors will open at 8:00 PM. 

Brendan Doherty:

Watch the reporting of the official Primary Results with Brendan Doherty 

7:30pm – 10:00pm

Le Foyer

A few things to watch for tomorrow:

There is only one Rhode Island primary election tomorrow (Tuesday Sept. 11) that is being watched from Woonsocket to Washington, D.C.  RIPR political analyst Scott MacKay brings you the first district Democratic donnybrook.

The 1st District U.S. House primary joust between Democratic David Cicilline and Anthony Gemma has been in-your-face nasty, as rough as it gets in a little state known for big political fights.
