There may not be a bigger challenge out there.
Leonard Britton Adv ’83 announced on Monday that he will seek the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Vermont, going up against six-term incumbent Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.
"If ever there were an anti-incumbency mood in this country, and in this state, and we know that from talking with Vermonters already, this is it," Britton told WPTZ.
Britton said he will focus on employment, national security and sustainable government budget policies in his campaign.
A self-described "common sense republican,” Britton said he is concerned about the federal bailout plan and the war in Afghanistan in an interview with WPTZ. The U.S. Senate should reject the current health care reform bill on the grounds that it will gain senators votes, but not solve problems, Britton told WPTZ.
The owner of a hardware and lumber company in Vermont, Britton received a graduate degree in film studies from Dartmouth. He pursued history, political science and communications at the University of Vermont, according to his campaign web site.
