PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo says she’s pleased and not surprised that the FBI won’t recommend criminal charges against Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

The Democratic governor tells WPRO-AM that “everybody agrees it was careless” for Clinton to use the private email server.

Her words echoed those of FBI Director James Comey, who on Tuesday called Clinton’s actions “extremely careless” but said criminal charges are not appropriate.

Raimondo has long backed Clinton’s presidential campaign.

She says Clinton has to continue to work on building trust but that she expects her to win the election in November.

Raimondo says Clinton is the only candidate in the race who is qualified and fit to be president.
