CRANSTON — Speaker after speaker at the Rhode Island Republican Party's 2022 nominating convention agreed: The party's prospects are looking brighter than they have in years. 'This is probably the most energized crowd I've seen in the 12 years I've been doing this,' said newly minted House Minority Leader Michael Chippendale. 'This is a great time to be running as a Republican in the state,' agreed national committeeman — and local historian — Steve Frias. 'People ask me, ‘Has it ever been this good?' It's better than 2014, it's better than 2010, it's probably even better than 1994.
