He got a head start and has been Governor for 15 months but it is looking like Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee might be almost won but definitely done. At times, McKee has been viewed as the safe prom date: nice guy, part time job, drives a station wagon and won’t embarrass you on the dance floor. But not the dreamy, exciting prom date or exciting inspiring Governor. McKee finds himself stuck around forty percent approval in a recent poll and only twenty percent of the vote in the Democrat primary for Governor. There are no more press conferences and he is glued to the hip of his Lt. Governor who is very limited in what she brings ( Latino Providence vote) to the table. McKee has had some good moments but seems like a struggling golfer who cannot break 80. The Governor has given away bonuses, established a working relationship with the House and Senate but he just cannot dunk the ball. Dan McKee can do a layup, but McKee can’t dunk. McKee seems like a reliable car that is fine on side streets but a car that cannot go over 50mph, so not a highway car. Now McKee continues down the path of doing everything a Governor gets to do but there is a thirty percent undecided group of voters who seem to think Dan McKee is a safe prom date and they want to see who else is out there. Governor McKee has a forty percent approval rating, an ongoing FBI probe and an opponent with plenty of money to knock him closer to thirty percent, with a strong possibility of him finishing third in the primary. Early voting starts August 24, with the primary on September 13, but the race could be decided by Labor Day.
