Berlin, VT - “With Senator Sanders’ announcement this morning it is clear that he has once again put his own interests in front of the interests of Vermonters.” said Vermont Republican Party Chairwoman Deborah Billado.
“In 2016, Senator Sanders was an absent Senator and in coming years we can expect the same. Vermonters deserve a full time Senator. Vermonters deserve a Senator that believes in what is best for Vermonters, not what is best for his political ambitions. Vermonters deserve the opportunity to have full representation in Washington. If Senator Sanders is keen on continuing his presidential campaign then he must resign and vacate his seat immediately.”
