I met Cathie while we both worked as volunteers for Organizing for America. I can boast that our personal sweat went into getting the Affordable Care Act passed.

Monday's event brought out supporters from around Rhode Island, including George Carvalho, chief of staff for Senator Whitehouse as well as  Scott Andrews from the Whitehouse campaign; Seth Klaiman, campaign manager and Mike DeAngelis from Senator Langevin's office; RI Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed and her chief of staff, Tom Coderre; Representative Larry Valencia and his wife Patti; Arlene Hicks, Exeter Town Council President; Bob Johnson, Exeter Town Democratic Committee chair; Pat DeBernardo of The Richmond Democratic Committee; and Tim Quillen, Scott Keeley and myself, representing Charlestown Democrats.

Cathie Cool Rumsey is the only Democrat running for State Senate in District 34, which covers almost the entire northern part of Charlestown north of Route One. District 34 is huge, extending down through Exeter down through Richmond, Hopkinton, West Greenwich and nearly all of Charlestown north of Route One.

endorsed by the CDTC
Hers is the name to remember when going to the polls on September 11 for the Democratic primary since she has no Democratic opponent. She is endorsed by the Charlestown Democratic Town Committee.

On November 6 Cathie will compete with either incumbent Republican Francis Maher or Republican Paul R. McFadden.

And she happens to have the coolest web domain:
