Just when you think you know what’s what, someone comes along and throws a curve-ball at you.
Politics Vermont is reporting that Jumpin’ Jim Jeffords, best known in liberal-Democratic circles across the country for screwing the Republican Party hard in 2001, has come out with an endorsement for Republican Governor Jim Douglas. (Here is a Boston Globe story, so you don’t have to take PolVT’s word for it.)
What’s up with that?
This doesn’t look so good for the Democratic candidate, Scudder Parker. I mean, if the champion of lefties everywhere finds Douglas to be a suitable governor of the state, is there a reason to vote him out?
