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



Marrying off the candidates

First, Peter Welch and now his former opponent, Martha Rainville.

Welch got married earlier this month to state Rep. Margaret Cheney.

Rainville, former adjutant general of the Vermont National Guard who was Welch's Republican opponent in 2006, found someone with whom she shares both politics and military. She recently became engaged to Paul McHale, a former Democratic congressman who has enough ties to Republicans to have served as assistant defense secretary in the Bush administration, according to a news report.

Here's the story from the Express-Times in Easton, Pa.:

Congrats to the soon-to-be newlywed.

- Terri Hallenbeck

Martha and a Democrat with ties to Bush? Expect a torrent of invective from jw as soon as his sensors go off!
Wonder if she's going to come back to VT. I liked Martha. Voted for Welch but I still liked her.
I thought she was gay. Who would have gueesed not.
Just because she married a guy does not mean she's not gay.

Not that it matters.
