September 23, 2021

He sought the state government’s top job in the past and plans to do so again.

Former Rhode Island secretary of state Matt Brown will run for governor of Rhode Island in 2022, according to The Providence Journal. Brown is a part of the progressive faction of the Democratic Party.

“Every revolution starts somewhere small. Every day someone wakes up and decides that they are done struggling alone,” Brown said, according to The Providence Journal.

“Rhode Island is run by the most corrupt political machine in America,” he added.

He unsuccessfully sought his party’s nomination for governor in 2018. He got 33.5 percent of the vote; Gina Raimondo, who won the general election, got 57.2 percent of the vote.

He served as Rhode Island’s secretary of state from 2003 to 2007.
