More gubernatorial forums

Vermont grocers get a chance to hear the five Democratic gubernatorial candidates Thursday at the Capital Plaza in Montpelier – assuming all five are free for lunch.

On Feb. 24, the Democratic quintet — Sen. Peter Shumlin, Sen. Doug Racine, Secretary of State Deb Markowitz, former Sen. Matt Dunne and Sen. Susan Bartlett — have confirmed participation in a Vermont League of Cities and Towns’ “lightening round” forum.

Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie, the only announced Republican gubernatorial candidate, was also invited, but he is declining to appear in these early candidate forums.

The Orleans Progressive Party has invited the Democratic candidates for a forum in Newport on Feb. 27, but this event doesn’t offer as much visibility as the Burlington Mardi Gras parade. Some candidates show the parade, not the forum on their schedules.

Pollina for Governor!!!
Where's Dubie - oh yeah - he's not going to let voters where he stands until after the primary!

Who's he - didn't he run and lose something like 4 or 5 elections already?

How many does he have to lose before he realizes he can't win a statewide race.
Pollina came in second last time - ahead of the DEMOCRAT.
No one really cares.
