PolitiFact Rhode Island has compiled promises that Lincoln Chafee made during the 2010 campaign and is tracking their progress on our Linc-O-Meter.

We rate their status as Not Yet Rated, In the Works or Stalled. Once we find action is completed, we rate them Promise Kept, Compromise or Promise Broken. (See our About the Linc-O-Meter page for more details on our ratings.)

The report card at right provides an up-to-the-minute tally of all the promises.
