Could it be that Democrats will have two candidates running for lieutenant governor come July 21 -- after the rollercoaster ride of recent months? That would mean a PRIMARY.
We know Nate Freeman of Northfield is in. He's the guy who runs an upholstery business and is a single parent to two young daughters. He said he watched from the political sidelines this year until he could watch no more. You might see him at some public events this weekend.
Tom Costello, Brattleboro lawyer and former legislator, is just days away from deciding. He said his law office is OK with his running and his family has given him the nod, too. Now he has to decide whether this is the right time and the right office.
Progressives don't expect anyone to take the plunge -- although Morgan Daybell said there have been conversations.
Brian Dubie, the three-term Republican incumbent, is the guy that Freeman/Costello? will face come November.
Stay tuned. (Shouldn't there be an updated version of this expression for blogs. Tuning, of course, refers to radio. Stay online? Stay connected?)
