The 'shove it' heard around the state

(CNN) - "Shove it" was the most used phrase in the Rhode Island Gubernatorial debate Tuesday night.

Democratic nominee Frank Caprio said the president should "shove it" this week after not endorsing his candidacy. And the topic was the lead off question of the night's debate.

"It was a political answer to a political reaction that the White House took. When you're dealing in a political situation words like that are not uncommon. I stand by my words," Caprio said. "I reacted in a very human way, and I will continue to react in an appropriate way down the road."
