Lincoln Chafee More Unknown to Americans than Rhode Island

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND (The Nil Admirari) - Former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee confirmed he will run for president as a Democrat and officially announce his decision this evening. A TNA poll conducted earlier in the week found a vast majority of Americans had no idea who Lincoln Chafee was and had never heard of Rhode Island.

When Americans were asked who Lincoln Chafee was just over 96% responded "never heard of him" or "he's that guy who freed the slaves." Just under 91% responded "is that a thing?" or "Long Island?" when queried about Rhode Island.

Rhode Islanders were unanimously confused by Chafee's run for president since literally no one in the state had asked him to do so. The one-term governor of Rhode Island who did not run for re-election still insisted he was undaunted.

"I am not worried by the complete absence of support and money at home or across the country. I am excited to discuss tough issues with the other Democratic presidential candidates who actually know what the hell they are doing," said Chafee.

Chafee also stated he was looking forward to eventually finding supporters and money for his presidential bid.
