NBC10 reports that Fung avoided all primary debates: "The two favorite contenders for the major party's nominations are refusing to appear in any of the offered statewide forums.

"I want to express my respect for the courage that it took for Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford to tell her story in front of a national audience,? Flanders said.

"Sheldon Whitehouse's juvenile questioning about high school yearbooks and flatulation were a new low in our nation's judicial nomination process. Rather than follow his Constitutional obligation to `advise & consent,' Sheldon has decided to deceive & beleaguer."

Zaccaria has twice run for Congress in the 2nd District held by Rep. Jim Langevin and chaired the party from 2011 to 2013. He's a former member of the North Kingstown Town Council. He told The Providence Journal he's not running "just because I happen to have a pulse." He says he's doing so to offer a viable alternative to Reed. Reed has been in the Senate since 1997. He won his last re-election campaign handily.
