With just days to go before Election Day, Republican House and Senate candidates remain focused on an economic message in the hope they can snatch a handful of seats from Democrats.
“I’m thinking Franklin, Washington and Rutland (counties). I think those are the strong spots,” said Senate Minority Leader Joe Benning, R-Caledonia. “We have a sleeper candidate in Orange. He may surprise some people.”
The GOP stands a smaller chance of grabbing a seat in Chittenden County, where Republican challenger Joy Limoge faces the “toughest uphill battle of the bunch,” Benning said.
