Parsing The Primary Election Results
The results of Tuesday's primary are in - most of them, anyway. Democratic candidate Christine Hallquist will face incumbent Republican Gov. Phil Scott in November. Peter Welch and Bernie Sanders both won the Democratic nomination for the seats they already hold, though Sen. Sanders will turn down that nomination and run as an independent.
Brooke Paige won the GOP nomination for five (maybe six) offices, though he may not be on the November ballot for all of them. And there are a few surprises in the nominations for Vermont's legislature.
We're talking about all these results and how it all shapes the race to the general election in November.
We'll also talk to Jack Moulton, executive director of the Vermont Republican Party about the GOP's strategy going forward now that candidate Brooke Paige has won multiple nominations.
