People's Pledge

A so-called “people’s pledge” has been hammered out and agreed to by the three leading democratic candidates running for governor. The goal is to limit outside spending.

To limit that outside spending, Clay Pell, Gina Raimondo, and Angel Taveras have agreed to a pledge calling for any candidate who benefits from an ad bought by an outside group to make a charitable donation for the same amount of the ad buy.

Gina Raimondo's campaign for governor wants to reach an agreement with Angel Taveras and Clay Pell to eliminate outside spending in the expected three-way Democratic primary, her campaign manager said Tuesday.

"We want an agreement that eliminates any and all outside spending," said Eric Hyers.
