Shumlin Says He's Not Worried About Vote

milneforvermont.org/Shumlin for Governor

Governor Peter Shumlin says he will not be campaigning in the days leading up to the special January 8th  vote in which the Legislature picks Vermont's next governor.

Shumlin won the popular vote in a close election on November 4th , with 46.4 percent to 45.1 percent for Republican Scott Milne. Since neither got a majority, the race goes to the Legislature to decide.

Shumlin said Tuesday that he is not worried about the outcome of the vote and believes lawmakers should follow precedent and choose the one who received the most votes.

Shumlin says he has not spoken to any legislators about how they plan to vote.
