Didn’t see that coming.
The Burlington Free Press has endorsed Sue Minter.
As have the Rutland Herald and Barre-Montpelier Times Argus.
Both are surprising; the latter because the ex-Mitchell Family papers are published in (1) the heartland of Vermont Republicanism and (2) Phil Scott’s home turf respectively. I mean, c’mon, Thunder Road.
The former because, well, I thought the Free Press’ endorsement of David Zuckerman sent clear signals that the paper would split its ticket and go with Scott.
Instead, we have the state’s three biggest newspapers going with Minter.
