WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - State Rep. Aaron Regunberg has kicked off a run for lieutenant governor.

The Providence Democrat made the announcement Tuesday in Warwick.

The run potentially pits him against incumbent Democratic Lt. Gov. Dan McKee. A McKee spokesman says on Tuesday that McKee will announce his plans for the coming election on Nov. 7. He would not comment on what post McKee is considering.

The 27-year-old Regunberg was first elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2016. He led the push for legislation mandating paid time off for workers who call in sick.

He is a graduate of Brown University and also founded the Providence Student Union to advocate for the rights of public school students in the city.
