Former R.I. Supreme Court Associate Justice Robert Flanders hasn’t formally announced he will challenge Senator Whitehouse next year, but he has hired a campaign manager. Marissa A. Martinez, a manager with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, has agreed to run Flanders’ campaign, according to Republican political operative and Flanders consultant Patrick Sweeney. A Mexican-American graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Johns Hopkins, Martinez was an intern for California Rep. Devin Nunes in 2013, according to her Linkedin profile. Flanders will likely face a Republican primary against state Rep. Robert Nardolillo, who has already announced his candidacy.
