Zuckerman to face Scott in November

Source: WCAX

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman is going to be seeking to oust incumbent GOP Gov. Phil Scott in the November General Election.

During Tuesday's Vermont primary, Zuckerman defeated former Vermont Education Secretary Rebecca Holcombe and two lesser known candidates to win the party's gubernatorial nomination. The 48-year-old Zuckerman, a Hinesburg farmer, says he was motivated to run by what he calls "the imperative nature of the climate crisis."

Zuckerman says he thinks Scott is "a really admirable person" but he hasn't been really visionary on how to address these issues.

1. Pretty damn soon I will be able to wear my hair like that thanks to the pandemic.

The thing is I am 73 years old.

2. I know how you feel.

I bought a set of clippers and cut my own. Not as good as barber, but it's not that bad either. At least i got the hair off during the heat wave.

4. Totally!

I'm sick of Republican governors in Blue states. While Scott may not be Trump, he's in his Party.

6. He is awful

I think Zuckerman, with the help of Bernie, can win.

7. Scott is very very likely to win

It is considered that he has done a very credible job handling the corona virus. The Democrats have a veto proof legislature if they all stick together.

8. Nonetheless this is a blue state. Scott still brings the state to the right

Zuckerman represents Vermont far more than Scott. This race will be much, much closer than polls are showing right now. GO ZUCKERMAN!!!!

10. I hope you are right and without the virus I think we would have had a chance

However, I have heard too many people say positive things.

5. Well, good luck but Scott is going to be very tough to beat

He's an old style Yankee Republican and he's done a good job managing the virus.

Zuckerman doesn't have the advantage of being able to tie Scott to Dumdum. Scott's going to have to do something really stupid between now and November, I'm afraid. The main thing in Zuckerman's favor right now is that he's a farmer in a heavily agricultural state where people know by the decline in maple sap that climate change is real.

9. True

But if anybody can do it, it is Bernie Sanders's protege who currently holds the Lt Governor job.
