We perform a light-cone gauge quantization of the Ramond-Ramond sector of the closed spinning string in three spacetime dimensions (3D). The spectrum is Lorentz invariant and identical to that of the 3D Green-Schwarz closed superstring with N = 2 space-time supersymmetry, quantized in light-cone gauge.
