6. Another candidate who’s feeling confident these days is Guillaume De Ramel, making his second bid for secretary of state. This week De Ramel rolled out endorsements from North Providence Mayor Charlie Lombardi as well as the Johnston and Charlestown Democratic committees. His campaign was particularly pleased with the support in North Providence and Johnston: De Ramel lost the 2006 primary to Ralph Mollis by just 4,953 votes after getting crushed by 4,327 votes in those two communities. Team De Ramel is also working to shore up his support among women as he squares off against Nellie Gorbea, who’s got her own broad network of backers. To that end, the De Ramel campaign has scheduled a show-of-force fundraiser at The Dorrance on Feb. 11 with an all-female host committee that includes Grace Diaz, Merle Goldstein, Edna O’Neill Mattson, Nancy Mayer, Nuala Pell, Alison Townsend and Anastasia Williams. The proceeds could help De Ramel maintain his sizable financial advantage over Gorbea: his campaign had $538,476 on Dec. 31, while hers had $129,840.
