Chafee declares; Here’s his PolitiFact scorecard

So Lincoln Chafee — Rhode Island’s Republican-independent-Democrat — is running for President.   The former governor of the smallest —  and at times quirkiest —  state has a PolitiFact record that is as mixed as his political lineage. During the four years that the former Republican U.S. senator served as first the independent and then the Democratic governor of Rhode Island, only once did PolitiFact judge one of his statements Half True.   More often, the Truth-O-Meter swung back and forth from True to False as Chafee battled a stagnant economy and a hostile General Assembly.
