The state of Vermont has an unusual election law in that it allows candidates to simultaneously run for more than one office. Republican Brooke Paige has taken the legal loophole to extremes, however. On Tuesday, Mr. Paige was nominated for the US Senate, the at-large US House seat, state Treasurer, Secretary of State, State Auditor, and Attorney General. Therefore, he will appear on the November ballot for all of these offices.
Though he was successful in winning six simultaneous nominations in the recent Republican primary, his luck will certainly run out for the general election. An 0 for 6 record appears to be on Mr. Paige’s political horizon, as it currently appears that he will lose every race.
