Providence, R.I. – Former Rhode Island Supreme Court Justice and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Judge Robert Flanders, was endorsed Sunday evening by the Providence Republican City Committee.
The endorsement occurs before the June 27th Republican nominating convention and marks the seventh endorsement Judge Flanders has received, following the endorsements of the Warwick, Newport, East Greenwich, Cumberland, South Kingstown, and Glocester Republican Town and City Committees.
“The Providence Republican City Committee has voted to proudly endorse Bob Flanders to be our next United States Senator. Rhode Island is long overdue for a positive change. He is the candidate who will bring more prosperity to Rhode Island working families and lead Rhode Island and our country toward a better future,” said William Ricci, Chairman of the Providence Republican City Committee.
“Bob Flanders is known as a giant of the RI Supreme Court, and his additional achievements are well known,” Ricci continued, “including his role in rescuing our neighbor Central Falls (which is nationally recognized as Rhode Island’s Comeback City), but Bob Flanders’ story starts with humble beginnings: he grew up in a working middle class family. His professional and life experiences clearly inform his mission to help revitalize our urban communities and support working families and small businesses here in Providence and across the state.”
“Judge Flanders’ experience, vision, organization, and funding set him clearly apart as the only viable Republican candidate for U.S. Senate and he will make an extremely successful and effective U.S. Senator for the people of Rhode Island. The Judge has received more than three times the number of endorsements from Republican town and city committees than his potential primary opponent. He is going into the convention with momentum and a groundswell of support for his candidacy,” said Campaign Manager Richard Kirby.
Additional endorsement decisions are slated to be announced. The Rhode Island Republican Party State Central Committee will convene on June 27th to endorse the party’s statewide candidates.FacebookTwitterGoogle +
