Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) told the Associated Press on Friday that he is considering running for re-election as a Democrat to bolster his chances of winning.
"I have to make some decisions about that," Chafee said. "There is no independent governors association throwing money around ... but there is a Democratic Governors Association."
Chafee served in the U.S. Senate for one term as a Republican before being defeated by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) in 2006. Elected as an independent governor in 2010, Chafee said that he has no intention to return to the GOP.
