Same story, different headlines. Associated Press workhorse Dave Gram filed a post-primary story on the outlook for the November elections. His unsurprising thesis: the incumbents have a hefty advantage. Hard to argue, that; but the story’s a useful space-filler for holiday weekend editions of Vermont newspapers.
And so the Mitchell Family Organ (North) and the Freeploid both published Gram’s story on Sunday. The MFO(N)’s headline:
Incumbents favored in Vermont midterm elections
And at the Freeploid?
Milne promises a fight as incumbents are favored
The Burlington Free Press: Official Turd-Polisher to the VTGOP.
