Ashley Kalus, GOP Business Owner, to Run for Governor

Ashley Kalus, a businessperson who has never before sought political office, has announced that she is seeking the Republican nomination for governor of Rhode Island.

“Ask yourself: who has Rhode Island been changing for? Every day gets harder for working families,” she said in a video announcing her candidacy. “We’re getting killed at the pump, food prices are soaring, it costs more to heat our home, income is not matching inflation, the dream of owning a home is out of reach for many, and we pay more for health care and get less. As a mom of three school-aged boys, I understand these struggles.”
