DGA Statement on Christine Hallquist’s Primary Victory in Vermont

Today, Democratic Governors Association Chair Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) released the following statement on Christine Hallquist’s primary victory in Vermont:

“Congratulations to Christine Hallquist on her historic primary victory in Vermont,” said Inslee.“Christine Hallquist has a clear vision for moving Vermont forward, that includes passing paid family leave, raising the minimum wage, and protecting Vermont’s natural beauty. As head of the Vermont Electric Cooperative she rebuilt its finances and transformed it into a national leader on using renewable sources. Her business leadership and sound fiscal responsibility is exactly what Vermont needs. Christine will stand up to Donald Trump’s policies that hurt Vermont – and will lead Vermont forward. We’re proud of Christine’s historic candidacy, and we welcome her to the most diverse crop of gubernatorial nominees in American history.”
