What's Next For The Vermont GOP? Chairman David Sunderland Explains

GOP lawmakers Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, Rep. Kurt Wright and Sen. Joe Benning and Rep. Don Turner assembled after Gov. Peter Shumlin's inauguaral address on Jan. 8 to give their reactions.

This morning, state lawmakers re-elected Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin to a third term in office. That’s likely no surprise to many political observers, as the Vermont Legislature is controlled by Democrats.

But what has been surprising is how close Republican Scott Milne came to winning that race. Republicans also picked up seats in the Legislature in November, after 14 years of losing ground there.

It’s been a wild ride for the Vermont State Republican Party over the last two months and the party’s Chairman, David Sunderland, joined VPR to talk about what’s next.
