If ever there was a Rhode Island tradition that never wanes, it is `May Breakfast,’ that old fixture where church fellowship meets scrambled eggs, bacon and coffee. It has an old-timey feel, even when it resembles a political ``time’’ as any gathering of pols was once referred as, especially when the eats were accompanied by a campaign dollar or two.
The political aftermath of the Newtown school shooting, and John Robitaille takes himself out of the Republican field for governor in 2014. That’s part of the discussion this week on Political Roundtable. With our host, Rhode Island Public Radio political reporter Ian Donnis, Rhode Island Public Radio political analyst Scott Mackay, University of Rhode Island political science professor Maureen Moakley and special guest Donna Perry Executive Director of the RI Statewide Coalition.
