Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin, who narrowly survived his reelection bid last November, announced Monday at the Statehouse that he will  not seek re-election to a fourth two-year-term. As WAMC North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley reports, the state’s political class is now feverishly looking ahead to an open race in 2016.

This week Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed a bill into law allowing same day voter registration.  While many activists are praising the move, some concerns remain about the logistics implementing the new law.

The Vermont Attorney General's office has filed a civil lawsuit claiming the publicly-financed candidate in last year’s race for lieutenant governor committed campaign finance violations. Now, the former candidate has filed a countersuit.

Republican Vermont gubernatorial candidate Scott Milne is not requesting a recount of last week's election results, but he is leaving open the possibility of asking the legislature to elect him in January. But considering party makeup in Montpelier, that’s considered a long shot — and would go against tradition in the Green Mountain State.
