“We’re super excited to be here in Rhode Island,” said A’shanti Gholer, national political director of Emerge America. “We feel that Rhode Island is a state where we can start to make a difference. It is not going to happen overnight, we are not the immediate prayer answer to everything, but we know that in a few years there can be some great Emerge women on the ballot.”
