Democratic candidate for Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea joins the Political Roundtable this week, to discuss the Providence mayor's race and the newest candidate, Buddy Cianci; voter identification law; casino gambling in Rhode Island and Massachusetts; and high stakes testing in high schools.

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.
