SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. – Scott Milne, the Republican gubernatorial front-runner, has released a lengthy list of current and former legislators endorsing his candidacy for governor.

“We’re excited to have such widespread support from so many decision-makers in the House and Senate,” said Milne, who is firming up his schedule for Tuesday’s Primary Day. “We’ve had a lot of them reach out in hopes of making some real changes.
