Political notes from Free Press staff writers Terri Hallenbeck, Sam Hemingway and Nancy Remsen



Live from Brattleboro

Just listened to the live web-streamed broadcast of the Rainville-Welch debate from Brattleboro.

We learned a little bit more about who did or didn't ask Martha Rainville to consider running for political office. Brattleboro Reformer Editor Sabina Haskell asked her to clarify the rumors. Rainville said Sen. Patrick Leahy encouraged her to continue her public service after her career in the Vermont National Guard, though she indicated he did not specify which office she should pursue. House and Senate were mentioned, she said.

She never talked to Hillary Clinton about running for anything, she said. Some people encouraged her to run for governor, some for lieutenant governor.

I was doing other things as the debate streamed through my earphones, including being interrupted about 1,000 times by (undoubtedly) innocent co-workers, so I might have missed some subtleties. Did anybody out there hear anything they'd like to share?

- Terri Hallenbeck

I'm pretty sure you missed absolutely nothing.
