In Politics, One Often Gets a Second Chance

Republican-turned-Independent, former Senator Lincoln Chaffee of Rhode Island has loaned his exploratory committee for the Governor's race $200,000, bringing its war chest up to approximately $400k.

Currently, he has but a fraction of the Democratic frontrunner and less than the other Democratic rival, but with no Republicans declared and considering his name recognition, along with his family's place in the state's political culture, he's still one to watch.

Mr. Chafee is expected to announce his candidacy on Monday.
