Brien launches write-in campaign

September 20, 2012

WOONSOCKET – Flanked by supporters, State Rep. Jon D. Brien (D-Dist. 50, Woonsocket) announced Thursday that he’s launched a write-in campaign for re-election after losing the Democratic primary to firefighter Stephen M. Casey by 52 votes.
Perhaps the most conservative Democrat in the House, Brien said he lost because some voters wound up at the wrong polling places and also because he was targeted by pro-labor interests who supported Casey.
“This is our chance to get it right,” Brien said.
