On September 9, 2014 Activist Ken Block and Mayor Allan Fung are announced to square off in the Rhode Island Republican primary. less than two months before the General Election on November 4th. Fung is considered the political "home team",he has better name recognition and he holds an office, giving him a presence in front of the pubic and in the news cycle. Fung would have to be implicated in some major calamity to change that.
Sure, the “Cranston Parking Massacre” has caused some worry about the Mayor's agility and adroitness in avoiding “trap” stories. However a recent WPRI poll showed he is much better known then “visiting” Ken Block. Fung also was rated favorably or at least fair by the majority of those polled. Most voters said they didn’t know enough to rate Ken Block. Parking gate schmarking gate.Fung would have to be indicted or kill someone, to lose that advantage. But accidents do happen..............
