Blink your eyes and what you saw before is bound to change – at least when it comes to politics in Rhode Island. Candidates in what is a crowded gubernatorial field continue to jockey for position. Former Secretary of State Matt Brown, who was initially considering a run for governor as an independent, has indicated now that he’ll run as a Democrat, joining Gov. Gina Raimondo, and progressives Paul Roselli and former state Representative Spencer Dickinson.

Dickinson joined Frank on this edition of The Open Forum on  AM 1540 WADK Newport and helps us make some sense of the crowded field.
