Vermont’s statewide elected officials all win easily

November 7, 2018

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont’s Progressive Party lieutenant governor is headed for a second term.

In Tuesday’s voting, one-term Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman easily defeated Republican Don Turner by almost 20 percentage points.

Other statewide office holders to win re-election were all Democrats: Treasurer Beth Pearce, Secretary of State Jim Condos, Auditor of Accounts Doug Hoffer, and Attorney General T.J. Donovan.

Incumbent Republican Gov. Phil Scott, who easily defeated Democratic challenger Christine Hallquist, was the only GOP candidate to win a statewide race on Tuesday.

Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic U.S. Rep. Peter Welch were also re-elected by wide margins.
