On Friday’s Vermont Edition, Democratic candidate for governor Peter Shumlin defines his stance on key issues and the politics of his race with Brian Dubie. Plus, Jane Lindholm goes on one of Vermont’s allegedly haunted hikes.
Governor Jim Douglas remains very popular among voters as he prepares to step
down after eight years in office. It defies what often happens in a political
career, when those in office tend to wear out their welcome over time.
poll conducted for Vermont Public Radio shows that gubernatorial candidates
Brian Dubie and Peter Shumlin are locked in a dead heat in the final weeks of the campaign. The
VPR Vermont Poll shows that if the election were held today, Republican Brian
Dubie would get 44 percent of the vote and Democrat Peter Shumlin would garner
43 percent. Despite
weeks of intense advertising and dozens of debates, neither candidate has been
able to break through.
