Governor Lincoln Chafee enters the Board of Canvassers in Warwick City Hall shortly after 10:00 a.m. Thursday to sign a short form switching his party affiliation officially from Independent to Democrat before a hoard of reporters and photographers who had gathered there before his arrival. Chafee greeted a handful of city canvassers, including Dottie McCarthy, and then headed upstairs to the City Council chambers for a more formal press conference, where he was peppered with questions from the Rhode Island press corps as he stood by his former desk from when he was a city councilman from Warwick years ago.
