After failing to find an alternative, Vermont GOP re-nominates H. Brooke Paige for state treasurer

Perennial political candidate H. Brooke Paige is back in the race to serve as Vermont’s next state treasurer. After winning the Republican primary on Aug. 9, as well as three other statewide primaries for various executive offices, Paige earlier this month rescinded his GOP nomination in the treasurer’s race. The Vermont Republican Party attempted to tee up a candidate to replace Paige on the ballot by last Friday’s deadline but couldn’t find anyone, according to party chair Paul Dame. Eric Covey, chief of staff for the Secretary of State’s Office, confirmed to VTDigger that the party had re-nominated Paige.
