Lt. Gov. Phil Scott has won a decisive victory over businessman Bruce Lisman to win the Republican gubernatorial primary. Scott says his election shows that negative campaigning does not work in Vermont.

Democrats long ago raised concerns about the fact that Lt. Gov. Phil Scott owns a construction business that regularly bids on government transportation contracts. Now, Scott’s opponent in the GOP gubernatorial primary is joining them.
