Thread: Did any liberty candidates move forward in RI from the 9/11/12 primary?

  1. #1

    Question Did any liberty candidates move forward in RI from the 9/11/12 primary?

    Did any liberty candidates win their primary on 9/11/12? If so, who? We need to get the word to the Ron Paul folks in RI who may not know about the candidates.

    Barry Hinckley, Republican candidate for US Senate, didn't have a primary. He is moving onto the general election. Some people question how pro-liberty he is. You can check out his website. hinckleyforsenate.com

    Here is a web ad.


    Mike Donahue ran unopposed in the District 68 (Bristol and Warren) Republican primary for the General Assembly. He is the Republican candidate for District 68. Check out his website. http://www.mikedonahue2012.com/

    Both candidates are listed on this list as pro-liberty candidates. http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...ming-Elections

    Rhode Island 11/6/12 Election Results

    RI had 7 statewide ballot questions and at least 3 liberty candidates on the ballot - Barry Hinckley for US Senate, Mike Donahue for RI State House and Gary Johnson for President.

    Were there any other liberty candidates in RI? Based on the results I have, no pro-liberty candidate or ballot question passed (unless you consider Question 1 pro-liberty), all 5 anti-liberty ballot questions failed and the 3 liberty candidates went 0 for 3.
