Rhode Island Senate president Teresa Paive Weed would bring many assets to a race for 1st District Congress: a Newport, Aquidneck Island base, a strong electoral record and a proven legislative resume.
She is also of Portuguese descent and Portugese-Americans are arguably the most impotant ethnic voting group in the East Bay. But Paiva Weed has decided to stay in the State House, where she is the first woman Senate president. Her decision not to run means that there is not a strong woman candidate in the race that has so far attracted Providence Mayor David Cicilline and Democratic Party Chairman Bill Lynch of Pawtucket. The other woman mentioned as a candidate was Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Roberts, who has also decided to pass on the contest.
