WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Republican Governors Association (RGA) released the following statement from RGA Chairman Governor Greg Abbott congratulating Governor Phil Scott on his victory in the Vermont gubernatorial election:
“On behalf of America’s Republican Governors, I congratulate Governor Phil Scott on his victory in the great State of Vermont. Governor Scott’s ability to build bipartisan consensus and earn the support of Vermonters from across the political spectrum is proof that common sense Republican leadership works everywhere in our nation.
“Since taking office, Governor Scott has established a proven track record of putting Vermont’s working families first, and his leadership in the face of the COVID-19 crisis has put the Green Mountain State on a pathway to a strong recovery and even brighter future. The RGA is proud to support Governor Scott as he charts a course forward for an even stronger Vermont.”
RGA Executive Director Dave Rexrode added, “A Republican Governor in Vermont is a sore subject for the left. So much so that last year the DGA was claiming it was a lock that they would take out Governor Scott and flip Vermont. Yet once again, all their talk led to no investment in the state and another decisive defeat.”
