NOW DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS IN '94:

VT GOV: Shumlin Inching Ahead of Racine (Dan Roem, 8/25/10, Hotline)

State Senate Pres. Pro Tem Peter Shumlin (D) appears to be putting some daylight between himself and state Sen. Doug Racine (D) in a race dwindling down to a Last Man Standing competition. Shumlin's lead of 22 votes just jumped up to 216 with 34 precincts still left to report out of 260. Both men check in with about 25% of the vote and the race remains too close to call.

It'd be worth the GOP's time and money to back Senate candidate Len Britton against Pat Leahy, given a political cilimate that resembles 1994, when they could have knocked off Bernie Sanders statewide, and the strength of the gubernatorial candidate atop the ticket.
