MONTPELIER Vermont Vermont's Democratic caucus chose to stick with Senate President Pro Tempore John Campbell, re-electing him with a 15-6 vote over Ann Cummings. This is despite prior complaints about the way he ran the Senate during his last term.[1]

Campbell told senators that while his first term was rough, he would do better during the next legislative session. He said, "There were a lot of shortcomings in my first term. I wasn’t listening to everyone. I was listening to a small group of people.”[1]

Among Campbell's supporters was one of his most vocal critics, Senator Philip Baruth, who was persuaded that Campbell would allow more issues to be heard next session.[1]
