Last week, New Jersey and Virginia elected new Republican governors. In a year, Rhode Island will fill the governor’s seat with someone new, as Gov. Donald L. Carcieri runs up against his two-term limit.

At the moment, there are two serious Democratic candidates, General Treasurer Frank T. Caprio and Attorney General Patrick C. Lynch. A Republican, Rory Smith, has also said he will run. And although he has not officially declared his candidacy, former Sen. Lincoln Chafee is likely to enter the race as well.

Are any of these three a candidate you could support, or would you rather have someone else be the state’s next governor?
