Defeated Republican gubernatorial hopeful Jonathan Riccitelli made waves in the Ocean State on Friday when he announced he was backing Democratic incumbent Gov. Dan McKee over his primary rival.
Riccitelli, who long trailed his rival Ashley Kalus in the primary showdown, chastised her campaign as “baseless,” ripped her for dishonesty, and accused her of hypocrisy for hounding McKee for debates despite refusing to debate him during the primary race.
“Although I admire her drive and aspirations, I have found the entirety of her campaign to be baseless. And to listen to Ms. Kalus call out the Governor (Mckee) in regards to his refusing to debate … she blatantly refused my call to her as I had asked the same from her and her campaign,” he wrote in a press release.
Reporter Ted Nesi tweeted, “INBOX: Republican gubernatorial candidate Jonathan Riccitelli, who lost to @AshleyKalus in last week’s primary, is now crossing party lines and endorsing Dem incumbent @DanMcKeeRI over her #RIGov.”
