Former governor Lincoln Almond Wednesday endorsed Cranston Mayor Allan Fung for the state’s top job. Almond calls Fung the best-qualified Republican in the GOP primary for governor.
Almond says he reached out to Fung after being unimpressed with a recent TV appearance by Fung’s GOP rival, Ken Block. Almond says it’s not realistic to think Block can cut a billion dollars from the state budget over four years. The former governor said Fung’s experience as a mayor is what sets him apart.
