On April 4, 2005, former Rhode Island Attorney General (1999-2003) Sheldon Whitehouse emerged from the front door of his Elmgrove Avenue, Providence, home and, flanked by his wife and two children, formally announced that he would run for the United States Senate seat held by Republican Lincoln D. Chafee.

At the conclusion of the press conference, in which Whitehouse spouted the usual political Mad Libs and promised to "work my heart out in this race for every vote... and take absolutely nothing for granted," he and his family turned to reenter their home, and found the door locked.
