Campaign 2018: Republican H. Brooke Paige Zeroes In On Race For Vermont Sec. Of State

Oct 23, 2018

H. Brooke Paige is the Republican candidate for Vermont Secretary of State who has a unique history of running for office in Vermont: he's run for several different offices, and for different parties, in the past. 

In the August primary, Paige ran for, and won, six different offices for the Republican party. He withdrew from all of those races, except one: Secretary of State.

Bob Kinzel spoke with Paige for Vermont Edition about why he chose to pursue the secretary of state position, Paige's reservations about Vermont's early voting system and why Paige wants to see the state's primaries pivot to a caucused-based design that has statewide party conventions choose candidates. 

More on the Vermont Secretary of State race—the candidates debate on Vermont Edition Friday, Oct. 26.
