The GOP put out multiple press releases this week needling Governor Raimondo over tolls and the bridge closure (as well as Speaker Mattiello over the PawSox) in a bid to fan the flames. It will be interesting to watch how much Bell is willing to play the traditional attack-dog role of a vocal party chairman.
