Segal Ponders The Political Landscape
It will come as no surprise that former State Rep, and Dose creator, David Segal has been thinking about that First Congressional District seat again. Cicilline’s numbers are terrible and a recent WPRI-TV poll has him losing to the Republican candidates. Segal spoke to David Scharfenberg at The Phoenix,
Rhode Island’s First Congressional District, he says, should be sending someone to Washington who will protect Medicare and Social Security, push for progressive taxation, and press for an end to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Those are things I care about. Segal made a great showing in that last run and now has much greater name recognition. He is currently fighting the good fight working to oppose the Protect-IP Act, as well as the Patriot Act, through Demand Progress.
