    FILE - In this Nov. 3, 2010 file photo, Lincoln Chafee, the first independent to be elected Rhode Island governor, speaks with the media at his campaign headquarters in Warwick, R.I. Chafee may be winning back the support of the state's business community with a major public pension overhaul proposal, but he risks losing support from labor unions. Chafee's first 10 months in office have been tumultuous. He enraged critics of illegal immigration by backing a policy giving in-state tuition to illegal immigrants. He disappointed medical marijuana advocates by blocking a plan to license pot dispensaries. The pension fight may be his greatest gamble yet. (AP Photo/Stew Milne, File)
