If Orleans County’s legislative delegation had its way, Scott Milne would be Vermont’s next governor.
That’s not a surprising decision for the Republicans who represent the county, but as of this week only one of the three Democrats was willing to unequivocally say that he’ll follow tradition and support the candidate who won the popular vote.
Representative Sam Young of Glover said he will vote for Governor Shumlin.
“I think it’s generally a bad precedent if the Legislature starts electing people who didn’t win,” Mr. Young said.
