Vermonters First

Vermonters may soon know more about two new political action committees that are trying to influence election outcomes here.

The Republican-oriented group Vermonters First had pumped $70,000 into independent ads supporting auditor candidate Vince Illuzzi and treasurer candidate Wendy Wilton as of last week.

Meanwhile, the liberal PAC Vermont Priorities has been raising money and also is hoping to have an impact this election season.
