PAWTUCKET – Two Democrats are challenging in the Senate District 18 primary this week to represent parts of Pawtucket and East Providence, with the seat being vacated by outgoing Senator Cynthia Mendes who is making a bid for lieutenant governor.

On Sept. 13, political newcomer Gregory Greco is facing Robert Britto, who has eight years on the East Providence City Council, in the Democratic primary. Anna Peters is running unopposed in the Republican primary.
