Out with old and in with the new. RIPR political analyst Scott MacKay explains why that may be the theme of Rhode Island’s 2014 election cycle.
John F. Kennedy put it eloquently in his 1961 inaugural address: ``Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans.’’
The Ocean State elections promise to turn friend into foe, but that happens every two years in our insular political culture. What is becoming notable as the parade forms for the 2014 is the changing of the generational guard.
The newly elected chair of the Rhode Island Democratic Party is our guest on Political Roundtable this week. David Caprio weighs in on his problems with organized labor, a potentially fractious gubernatorial primary and his goals for the party that dominates Rhode Island politics. Rhode Island Public Radio’s Flo Jonic is filling in for Ian Donnis as moderator.
