Today, Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg for president, touting his track record of taking on our country’s hardest fights – winning – and his ability to defeat Donald Trump.

Governor Raimondo will officially endorse Mike this morning at an event in Providence, where Mike will also deliver remarks and share why he is the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump in November and unite the country.

“Mike is a problem-solver with a long track record of delivering results, and I’m proud to stand with him today,” said Governor Gina Raimondo. “From fighting gun violence, to addressing climate change, to combating the opioid crisis and more, Mike understands the issues that impact our lives every day. We cannot risk another four years of President Trump’s destructive policies, and I know that Mike is the right leader to take him on.”

The Mike Bloomberg 2020 campaign also announced that Raimondo will be a National Campaign Co-Chair. In this role, she will advise the campaign on key issues as well as attend events and share with voters why she believes Mike is the strongest candidate to beat President Trump.

“Governor Raimondo has been a trailblazer in Rhode Island. As the state’s first female governor, she has made record investments in infrastructure and education, and continues to lead the fight on the frontlines of the opioid crisis,” said Mike Bloomberg. “I’m honored to have the support of a leader so committed to driving turnout in this election and helping Democrats win up and down the ballot. I’m looking forward to working with her to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America.”
