Scott to attend Republican Governors Association meeting

Vermont Governor-elect Phil Scott will attend the Republican Governors Association meeting on Nov. 15 and 16.

The two-day conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Orlando, Florida, and it is the first gathering of Republican governors after the Nov. 8 election. Day one will feature panels on “leading the change” with Govs. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Rick Scott of Florida and Nikki Haley of South Carolina.

In day two, newly elected governors will hear about strategies employed by the “best states for business.”

On Election Day, voters elected seven Republican governors. The United States now has the largest number of Republican governors — 33 — since 1922, according to the RGA.

In Vermont, the Republican Governors Association spent $3 million on Phil Scott’s campaign. The organization purchased 13 television ads, two statewide radio ads, delivered 500,000 direct mail pieces and bought 5 million impressions in its digital campaign.

  • This is our next opportunity to see how strongly the Governor-elect can stand up for his principles and what is important for ALL of us in Vermont. Demand that the Republican Governors Association speak out loudly against the kinds of violence we’ve seen unleaded this week against women, non-white people, non-Christian people and those of us with special needs. The Republicans are a huge part of unleashing this monster and we need them to reign it back in. Stand strong Phil!

      I’m with John. If only more Republicans in the U.S. were more like Vermont Republicans. The world would be a much better place.

      Some in the GOP know this and have known this for months/years and some are now in the arrogant denial of reality that comes with victory, but the GOP is in desperate need of reform. Vermont Republicans would be a great example for the rest of the country.
