Milne nearly topples Shumlin

Waterbury Record - 11:13 am Thu Nov 6th, 2014

In a shocker, Scott Milne nearly upset Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin in Tuesday's election, and because neither of them got 50 percent of the vote, the Legislature must pick the next governor.

Election handicappers figured Shumlin had an easy road to his third two-year term, as Milne, the Republican nominee, was very late in entering the campaign, had little money, didn't get much help from the GOP, and, as a first-time campaigner, made some missteps.

However, Milne's criticism of Shumlin got surprising traction, as he blasted the Democratic governor's "experiment" on single-payer health care that has run into major problems.
