Shumlin tops Milne in Addison County — barely

ADDISON COUNTY — In Tuesday’s polling Gov. Peter Shumlin didn’t do any better vs. GOP challenger Scott Milne in Addison County than he did elsewhere in the state as he made a bid for a third term in Vermont’s top constitutional office.
With only the results for Lincoln still unreported at 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, Shumlin appeared to be on track to win the popular vote in Addison County and in the state — but just barely.  We had him leading Milne, 5,675-5,524.
Shumlin won handily in a few county towns, like Middlebury (1,341 to 733) and Ripton (157-65). Plus he won Bristol, 715-661. But Milne charged ahead in Ferrisburgh (535-412) and Vergennes (389-351). And Milne won more local towns than Shumlin — the Republican claimed 14 Addison County towns (including Salisbury and Monkton) to Shumlin’s 8 (and probably 9 once Lincoln is added in).
It appeared that neither Shumlin nor Milne would gain 50 percent of the statewide popular vote, which means that the Vermont House of Representatives will ultimately choose the winner.
