    Rep McNamara always seemed like a reasonably decent person to me, I can’t understand his extremely bad judgement in going along with these horrendous endorsements which he must have known would seriously split the RI Democratic Party. If Mattiello insisted, Joe Mac should have resigned as party chair. Also missing is the Governor whose leadership is completely lacking on this, if she were on the job she should have headed this off.
    What is sad is this split was so unnecessary, its not as if there are that many voters who vote on the basis of endorsements. We do need a coalition to ensure a Democrat in charge in RI to stand up to the many ways the Trump regime is hurting our region, we’ve seen the many disasters resulting from too many “progressives” undermining Clinton in Novemebr 2016 instead of helping her stop Trump.

      We’re still talking about Clinton? She lost my support when she voted for the Iraq War (as my Senator at the time btw). Big tent except for the anti-war vote, eh?
