Matt Fecteau, the Democratic primary challenger to Congressman David Cicilline, joins Political Roundtable this week to discuss his campaign; the departure of Lorne Adrain from the Providence mayoral race; this week's Republican gubernatorial debate at RIPR; and how to reduce violent crime in Rhode Island.

First Congressional District candidate Matt Fecteau joins Bonus Q+A to discuss his Democratic primary run against Congressman David Cicilline and related issues.

The sharply fought First Congressional District race will likely be won through the ground game on Election Day since a new Channel 12 poll shows the contest remains very much up for grabs.

The poll by veteran pollster Joseph Fleming shows Democrat David Cicilline with a one-point lead over Republican challenger Brendan Doherty. The margin of error, meanwhile, is just under six percentage points.
