Here are the uncertified results of yesterday's party primary voting in the local area:
In the District 51 State Representative race, encumbant Bob Phillips has apparently defeated Marlene Guy with 63.3% of the vote against Guy's 36.7%. There was no Republican candidate, so Bob Phillips is expected to be re-elected in November.
In the District 49 race to replace current Rep Steve Lima, Former City Electrical Inspector and Current Veterans' Museum Director Glenn Dusablon apparently defeated former City Councillor Alex Kithes 57.5% to 42.5%. This would mean that Dusablon will face Former State Rep and Former City Councilman Jon Brien, running as an Independant candidate, in November's runoff election.
The race for Rhode Island Governor was a tight one so far, but after trailing during much of the vote counting last night, Governor Dan McKee came from behind to apparently defeat Former CVS Executive Helena Foulkes by 3,039 votes, or 32.8% for McKee against 30.1% for Foulkes. Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea never had the lead during the counting and finished third with 26.1% of yesterday's Democratic Primary Vote for Governor. Governor McKee now faces the winner of the Republican Primary, Ashley Kalus, in November's General Election.
Listeners are reminded these figures are final as of last night, they include early voting and mail-in ballots, but nothing is truly final until the count is certified by the Board of Elections
