DGA Statement on Gov. Dan McKee’s Reelection Announcement
Today, following Rhode Island Gov. Dan McKee’s 2022 reelection campaign announcement, DGA Chair Gov. Roy Cooper released the following statement:
“After taking office in the middle of a public health crisis, Gov. McKee took swift action to get people vaccinated and guide businesses, workers, and families toward economic recovery. His leadership has played a pivotal role in making Rhode Island one of the top states in the country for getting its residents vaccinated against COVID-19, as well as keeping schools open, getting people back to work, and creating new, good-paying jobs.”
“In running for reelection, Gov. McKee has laid out a bold agenda that builds on his progress in moving Rhode Island forward. Already, he’s signed legislation to raise the minimum wage, and he’s invested in small businesses, affordable housing, and child care — proving to Rhode Island families they can count on him to keep his promises and fight for them on the issues that matter most.
“The DGA is proud to support Gov. McKee in his reelection campaign and we look forward to working with him as he continues to deliver progress and opportunity for Rhode Island.”
