Molly Gray Struggling With Democratic Support
POMFRET, VT – Mike Donohue, press secretary for the Scott Milne for Lieutenant Governor campaign, released the following statement:
“It is revealing that, with less than a month before Election Day and with votes already being cast, Molly Gray still has not consolidated the support of leaders within her own party. Far from a demonstration of support, today’s press conference is an acknowledgment that Gray is bleeding support among Democratic and independent voters who have deep concerns about her lack of voting record and her truthfulness.”
Last week, it was reported that Democratic gubernatorial nominee Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman hedged when asked about Gray’s honesty following his wife’s public declaration that Gray is “lying, manipulative” and “slimy.”
Scott Milne has received cross-party endorsements from sitting state Senator Debbie Ingram (D-Chittenden County) and state Rep. Linda Joy Sullivan (D-Dorset), and several other Democrats and Independent leaders from across Vermont.
Lt. Governor David Zuckerman Hedged When Asked If He Agreed With His Wife That Molly Gray Is Dishonest. “Asked if he felt Gray was dishonest, as his wife alleged, Zuckerman said ‘voters, and people out there have to interpret each of us for who we are and what we’ve done over our lifetimes and how we explain what we do and don’t do. I think she brings a lot to the table. She’s also new to this level of campaign and scrutiny. And as you know, learning some lessons along the way.’”
Scott Milne knows how difficult COVID-19 has been for so many Vermonters whose lives and livelihoods have been upended. Now more than ever, we need more leaders in Montpelier who understand the challenge of running a small business and creating and protecting good jobs. Scott is running for lieutenant governor in order to help move Vermont through our economic recovery and toward a more prosperous future. https://www.scottmilne.org/.
