PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) -- Democratic candidate for Governor Matt Brown is pounding the pavement this weekend--walking from Woonsocket to Narragansett ahead of Wednesday's primary. 

"It's a chance for me to talk to thousands of Rhode Islanders in the final days here about the issues that are most important to them," said Brown. "The system is not working for people, and we need new leadership, and I'm going to bring that change."

Stopping at the Patriots Diner in Woonsocket Friday night, the former Secretary of State painted Gov. Gina Raimondo as an insider who's trying to buy the election.

"Gov. Raimondo has chosen to spend the campaign using her millions of dollars in contributions from wall street and big outside corporations to spread false, negative attacks against me that she knows are false," said Brown.

He's sent Raimondo a cease and desist letter over this ad, accusing brown of laundering money and stiffing workers on his 2006 senate campaign.

"It's all true, it's all been documented, and I'm sure it's embarrassing for him but we stand by the ad," said Raimondo. 

Gov. Raimondo, speaking at a Providence rally Friday night to accept the endorsement of the group Moms Demand Action, which is pushing for gun reforms.

"It's a big issue. I'm a mom, it hits home for me, and I want to deliver for Rhode Island and make sure that we are a state that has common-sense gun laws," said Raimondo. 

Raimondo says unlike Brown, she has a proven track record.

"He hasn't even really lived here for most of the past 10 years. I've been here working every day," said Raimondo. 

All this as former State Rep. Spencer Dickinson keeps a lower profile, saying both Raimondo and Brown have been dishonest and corrupt. He promises more transparency.

"From my perspective they have a lot in common. Some people might not see that," said Dickinson. "I'm looking for a governor who essentially tells the truth."
