The ProJo, this morning, plays catch up on the latest political nugget - in this case, Speaker of the House Gordon Fox's endorsement of Providence Mayor David N. Cicilline for mayor.
The news, if less than earth-shattering - Fox and Cicilline have been close for years - was a nice little coup for new web site golocalprov.com, which launched yesterday. And this morning, some more promising stuff on the site - analysis of Cicilline's campaign from progressive activist Matt Jerzyk and an amusing take on nine people who might make good governors.
Will the site continue to break political news? It remains to be seen. But one thing is clear. While the ProJo continues to be a vital resource for anyone who cares about politics in this state, the blogosphere - from WRNI, to the Hummel Report, to RI Future, to Anchor Rising - has moved from curiosity to must-see TV.
