Former Rhode Island Secretary of State Matt Brown, who vanished from the local political scene after an ill-fated 2006 run for U.S. Senate, said Thursday he's planning an independent campaign for governor.

Rhode Island’s  Democratic secretary of state primary between Newport investor Guillaume De Ramel and Nellie Gorbea is shaping up as one of the state’s most interesting down ballot elections in  this 2014 campaign cycle.

De Ramel will announce this afternoon that he has secured the endorsement of  former U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, who represented the state’s First District from his first election in 1994 until he decided against running for reelection in 2010.
