Ummm, does this mean that Lt. Gov. Dubie might be fearful of appearing in Senator Shumlin's home county in a face to face debate? Surely to balance that Dubie certainly declined to have any debates in HIS home county. Dubie after all believes in fairplay even if his political handlers advise him to be unfair, doesn't he?

"A man showed up...carrying a "Convicts 4 Shumlin" sign and wearing an orange prison suit and what appeared to be a fake swastika tattoo." Witnesses say he got out of a vehicle covered in Brian Dubie signs.


This man is a Brian Dubie supporter. He has actively campaigned for Dubie and has even distributed signs for Dubie in Bennington County.

Certainly what we need for Vermont, isn't it?
We have had more than our fill of Dubie - PLEASE!

Why come here to get manure thrown at you. This is a standard move of the liberals to break up distract and throw stuff at the speaker. Same ole protest they use at what they hate as in V Y

Dubie knows better than to subject himself to poop throwing Windham county folks. Smart move. Anyone right of Mao is despised by alot of "activists" here. Everyone knows it. And they will stoop to any level to discredit him, without, of course, discussing the issues.

If anyone truly believes he will have a huge voter block here is uninformed imo.
