James Douglas, Vermont's Republican governor, announced today that he will not seek a fifth term next year.
Vermont is one of the bluest states -- President Obama carried it by 37 points last year -- so this gives Democrats real hopes for a pickup.

GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
