Governor Daniel McKee took office on March 2, 2021, after the resignation of two-term Democratic governor Gina Raimondo. Raimondo, who was term-limited by the Rhode Island Constitution from running for a third consecutive term, took President Joe Biden’s offer to become his secretary of commerce, and resigned the day of her confirmation by the Senate.
McKee has stated that he intends on running for a full term. Also running for the Democratic nomination are Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea and perennial candidate Luis Daniel Muñoz.
