Politico Morning Education
Oct. 31, 2018
Save the Children Action Network, a group that advocates for the expansion of high-quality early education, is endorsing Republican Vermont Gov. Phil Scott’s bid for reelection. SCAN cited Scott’s plan to direct revenue from the state’s new online sales tax to boost child care subsidies for low-income families.
— At the same time, SCAN endorsed Vermont House Speaker Mitzi Johnson, a Democrat, for fighting “tirelessly for more child care funding in the legislature.”
— SCAN plans to air a 60-second radio ad supporting Scott. The group also is sending direct mail to voters in Johnson’s district advocating for her reelection. All in all, the group is planning to spend $40,000 in races in Vermont.
