Candidates chosen for state Senate special election

Rhode Island State House (WJAR)

Voters have trimmed the field of candidates for a special election to fill a state Senate seat in Pawtucket.

Pawtucket City Council member Sandra Cano won the Democratic primary on Tuesday and will face Republican Nathan Luciano for the District 8 seat.

The winner will fill the post vacated when Democrat James Doyle II resigned earlier in the year.

The special election is April 3.
