Warwick, RI - The Rhode Island Republican Party is appalled by the tactics used today against Republican candidate for District 33 State Representative, Robert Trager.
  
An anonymous mailer was received in the mailboxes of countless Narragansett and South Kingstown homes today, the day before the Special Election for State Representative in District 33.  The mailer contains a swasitka, confederate flags and other vile extremist propaganda.

 Chairman Brandon S. Bell states: "there was no return address, no signature, no one willing to take credit and certainly no disclosures as required by Rhode Island General Laws.  This is undoubtedly the most scurrilous, lewd, vicious and FALSE undertaking by any group or individual in an attempt to sway the outcome of an election in Rhode Island in modern memory.
 

Chairman Bell further stated that these tactics can only be expected by political insiders when they feel threatened.  He went on to say "the Rhode Island Republican Party fully intends to request that the Board of Elections conduct an investigation and audit of the various individuals and organizations who have an interest in this election and would be desperate enough to smear a respected Republican candidate."

"This garbage is cowardly and downright dirty."   "Bob Trager will work tirelessly for working families in South Kingstown and Narragansett.  He will always respect his opponents while fighting for individuals and small businesses to be attracted to and stay in the great State of Rhode Island.  A vote for Bob Trager on June 9, 2015 is a vote for ethics and responsibility."
