The last few years haven't been kind to Patrick Lynch. As Rhode Island Attorney General he chose to continue with the infamous lead paint public nuisance litigation. That was eventually tossed out by the Rhode Island Supreme Court Download Statev.LeadIndustriesAssoc.,Inc..
Then he decided to run in the governor's race. That also wasn't turning out so hot. In Politico.com, Jessica Taylor reports that he wasn't doing as well as the Democratic Party had hoped. And their hope was for a Democrat to regain that post.
