Gov. Phil Scott, 61, a former construction executive from Berlin, has won a third term as Vermont’s governor, according to the Associated Press.

Scott is a Republican in a heavily Democratic state and seen as popular with the public. He has been given high marks for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Scott, a frequent and rare GOP critic of Trump, has consistently called for civility in politics. Scott continues to lead Vermont by working, as he calls it, to make the state more affordable by promoting economic growth and not raising taxes or fees while protecting the most state’s most vulnerable.

Progressive/Democratic nominee David Zuckerman, 48, a Hinesburg farmer, campaigned on promises to do more to advance progressive causes, saying wealthy people should pay more in taxes and Vermont should do more to combat climate change.

Zuckerman was elected the state’s lieutenant governor in 2016.
