Well, the news is out on Facebook. Don Botts, a local Republican activist and Facebook controversy stirrer, is going to challenge Peter Palumbo (DINO of all DINO’s) for his State Representative seat. What will be the result of this daring move? Will Democrats in Cranston support Don in an effort to oust Palumbo? Could Don siphon off the more conservative voters to support him in a primary, leaving Palumbo more vulnerable to a primary challenge from a more progressive candidate?
If you want to “like” Don’s candidacy, you can go to this page on Facebook. I hope Don will agree to do an interview with me for Kmareka, to let the good people of District 16 know exactly where he stands on all those really hairy issues like immigration and abortion. Thanks to Don for being willing to brave the political waters here in Cranston. We need more people who have the guts to get out there.
