two days

Governor McKee’s Republican opponent just dumped another MILLION dollars into her own campaign! We don’t know much about Ashley Kalus… but the little we do know is deeply concerning. You may have seen the recent news stories – there have been a string of police reports, admitted harassment, fraud…

New Ad (ICYMI)

  John, Before anyone called me Governor or Mayor, I was known as “coach.” And to this day, that’s one of the titles I’m most proud of. I coached my players that they should always be ready to take their first shot – advice I’ve been sure to follow during my first 20 months in office – but these gu…

Hi John, I hate to reach out with bad news, but yesterday, we narrowly missed our October fundraising goal… which sets us back for the last (and most important) week of this race. Anything can happen in the final days of the campaign. That’s why it’s so critical we have the resources to meet our w…

You’re going to want to watch this

  John, you can’t lead a state you don’t know. And it’s extremely clear that Republican Ashley Kalus doesn’t know Rhode Island. We’ve confirmed she can’t pronounce Pawtucket, but she probably doesn’t know the name of the big blue bug, where Benny’s used to be, or not to drink Del’s through a straw.…

Can I be honest, John?

  John, Rhode Island’s late primary means that we have to pack an entire months-long general election campaign into a few short weeks (four and a half more weeks, to be exact). In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a contribution to re-elect Governor McKee, but first, I want to give you an hone…

  John,  The Governor’s Republican opponent thinks she can use personal wealth to buy power in our state, even though she moved here less than one year ago. Right now, our campaign is being outspent because, unlike the Governor, she can afford to dump millions of dollars into her own campaign.  I’m…

Rhode Island deserves better than this

Republican Candidate Ashley Kalus doesn’t want you to know that, as a Florida voter in 2020, she cast her ballot to re-elect Donald Trump... or how similar her leadership would be to her political mentor Ron DeSantis.  John,   Our Republican opponent avoided a contentious primary and stayed out of t…
