Speaker Boehner is so convinced of this claim that he systematically refuses to consider other campaign issues. After all, other issues would dilute the message and confuse the voting public.</p><p> Wed, 07 May 2014 16:45:00 +0000 Herbert London 89885 at http://wamc.org Second Republican to Run for VT Governor http://wamc.org/post/second-republican-run-vt-governor <p>Another Republican is entering the race for governor of Vermont.&nbsp; WAMC&#39;s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley reports...</p><p>Roy Newton, a Rutland area publisher, announced Wednesday that he plans to be on the GOP primary ballot in August.</p><p>Newton is challenging Sen.
