Notes: 
Sen. Jack Reed (D), a fixture in Rhode Island politics, was heavily favored to win fourth term, and, as expected, he easily defeated Mark Zaccaria (R).  Both Reed and Zaccaria were unopposed for their parties' nominations.

Zaccharia, a U.S. Air Force veteran, was the Republican nominee against U.S. Rep. Jim Langevin (D) in 2008 and 2010; in Dec. 2011 he was elected chair of the Rhode Island Republican Party and served one term. 
He also served as an elected a member of the town council in North Kingstown.  He runs a consultancy on process control and business management in Saunderstown.  In an Oct. 25 letter to voters, Zaccharia described "a federal government that is intent on growing larger and more central to all our day-to-day decision making."  He termed Reed "a longstanding incumbent of the Status Quo."  "If you are satisfied with the direction of the nation today, then Mr. Reed is your man," he wrote.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the Reed campaign spent $4.6 million for the cycle, while the Zaccaria campaign spent about $54,000.
