    Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo has won the Democratic nomination for a second term, fending off a challenge from the left by former Secretary of State Matt Brown.

    Raimondo has been running on her record of job creation and an improving economy, as well as her work to repair crumbling schools and roads and a free college tuition program she started.

    Brown had tried to paint Raimondo as too close to corporate interests and blasted her for her copious fundraising. She has raised $7.6 million for her re-election bid in a state with just 1 million residents and a single media market.

    Brown says health care, housing, education and childcare cost too much and he would work to build a different kind of economy that "works for everyone, not just for the few."
