Christina Nolan, Republican candidate for United States Senate, announced today that former Governor Jim Douglas is serving as Campaign Chair. Governor Douglas joined Nolan at the Vermont Secretary of State’s office to submit more than 1,000 signatures qualifying her to be on the ballot.
“Governor Douglas’ ability to reach across the aisle, bring people together and achieve meaningful results is an approach I intend to emulate in the United States Senate, and I am beyond honored to have his support,” said Nolan, who previously served as Vermont’s United States Attorney. “Washington has enough partisan bomb throwers more interested in scoring political points than making progress on the real challenges facing our country, from inflation to energy costs to crime rates. My opponent, Congressman Peter Welch, votes with party insiders in Washington D.C. 100 percent of the time. To those Vermonters who think Washington is hopelessly broken, my message is simple: change is coming, and it starts by retiring Congressman Welch.”
“I am very excited to be a part of the Christina Nolan campaign,” said Douglas, who served as Vermont’s 80th governor from 2003-2011. “Vermonters expect Democrats and Republicans to work together to make life better for everyone. Unfortunately, Washington has become dysfunctional. It’s more about ideology than doing what’s right. Senators shouldn’t just vote the party line. Christina Nolan will be an independent voice; she cares more about Vermont families and less about the extreme politics of DC. That’s why I strongly support Christina Nolan for U.S. Senate.”
