A hard-fought contest for the Democratic nomination for attorney general appears to be drawing the most attention as Vermont prepares for its 2012 state primary election.
Longtime incumbent Attorney General Bill Sorrell is drawing a challenge from fellow Democrat T.J. Donovan, the Chittenden County state’s attorney.
The Republican primary ballot features a contest between John McGovern and Brooke Paige for the nomination to take on incumbent Senator Bernie Sanders.
There’s also a write-in campaign being organized in the Progressive primary for governor.
The party had nominated longtime Progressive stalwart Martha Abbott, but activists opposed to mountaintop wind power projects are spearheading a campaign to write in the name of Annette Smith. She’s the head of the group Vermonters for a Clean Environment.
Vermont’s primary election is Tuesday.
