PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Incumbent Democrat Sabina Matos fended off Republican nominee Aaron Guckian and independent candidate Ross McCurdy Tuesday.

Matos won her first full term for the state’s No. 2 job, which she took over after Dan McKee ascended to governor in March 2021.

Guckian, a former banker from East Greenwich, and McCurdy – an educator living in Smithfield who ran for the same office in 2018 – were looking to hold statewide office for the first time.
