Vermont Secession Candidates Announce

Well, it was a couple weeks ago, but better late than never. In early January 2010 nine Vermonters announced they were planning to run for governor, lieutenant governor and seven seats in the state Senate on a Vermont secession platform. The story was carried by Associated Press and even made it to the New York Times! The candidates are running under the “Vermont Independence Day Party” label. More details here. Videos of two top candidates from YouTube/VermontCommons below.

UPDATE: Time Magazine prints Christopher Ketcham article The Secessionist Campaign for the Republic of Vermont.
