President Obama has endorsed Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gina Raimondo.
Raimondo’s campaign detailed the president’s support in a statement. President Obama says Raimondo has the business experience to create jobs, and the ability to bring people together to solve tough problems. The president was slated to appear at Rhode Island College Thursday, but canceled to focus on the ongoing Ebola crisis.
Meanwhile, former presidential candidate Mitt Romney is due to visit Providence Thursday to campaign for Raimondo’s Republican opponent, Allan Fung.
