PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The onetime Rhode Island Democratic candidate for governor who said President Barack Obama could "shove it" shortly before November's election has a new career at an Atlanta-based finance firm.
Former General Treasurer Frank Caprio is now a managing director at Chatham Capital, a firm that concentrates on small and middle-market businesses. The company tells The Associated Press in a release that Caprio opened up a Providence office for the firm.
Caprio holds a bachelor's degree in economics from Harvard University. He was scheduled to deliver a speech Wednesday at the Milken Institute Global Conference in Los Angeles on entrepreneurial finance.
Caprio came in third in the four-way gubernatorial race after his comments about Obama, prompted by the president's decision not to endorse anyone. Independent Lincoln Chafee won the election.
