    The ad consists of a series of statements from Vermonters on Gov. Peter Shumlin’s accomplishments.

    Davis predicts Shumlin could be hurt by low turnout for General Election

    Vote. It's good for you and for democracy.

    “I expect Shumlin to come in first,” Davis said. “But Shumlin needs to work hard to get above 50. If he wants a mandate for single payer he needs half of the votes cast.” He suggested that the Democratic field organizers are going to need to work hard to get independents who lean Democratic to turn out and get Shumlin’s percentage above 50.

    Milne touts polls that show him trailing Shumlin by 10 to 12 points; Davis questions accuracy

    A New York Times/CBS/YouGov.com opt-in, online poll of 430 Vermonters conducted Aug. 18-Sept. 2 shows a 11 percentage point gap between Milne and Shumlin. In the survey, 41 percent of Vermonters supported Shumlin, and 30 percent backed Milne. Fifteen percent of the respondents said they were undecided.

    Milne floats himself a $25,000 loan. Most of the rest of the money Milne received in donations came from family, family businesses and personal connections, including Nancy, Jonathon, Don and George Milne, Milne Travel and B&M Realty.
