Bob Tingle on Principles & Values

Republican Senate Challenger (RI)


A casino pit boss, knows the odds are against him

I definitely have a chance. It's a race, so I have a chance (to win). Someone has to win. It could be me. But Robert Tingle, a casino pit boss, isn't načve. "Trust me; I know the odds are against me. But it's not a game. It's democracy."

Tingle, a Pennsylvania native by way of New Jersey, worked in Atlantic City casinos before moving to Westerly, currently on Albert Street, to work at Foxwoods Resort and Casino.

Ran for Congress against Jim Langevin (D, RI-2) in 2000

Tingle and his family have lived in Westerly, Hopkinton, South Kingstown and back to Westerly over the years. He said he's been involved in Republican politics for more than a decade. Tingle ran as the GOP candidate from Rhode Island's 2nd Congressional District against Rep. Jim Langevin in 2000, was a delegate for Sen. John McCain at the 2000 Republican National Convention and in 2002, ran unsuccessfully against Reed in 2002.
