The Vermont Democratic State Convention met at Montpelier with Charles Davenport in the chair.  The gathering nominated Timothy P. Redfield of Montpelier as their candidate for governor and E.A. Chapin as his running mate.  Both men lost in the November elections.  Redfield fell to J. Gregory Smith by a significant margin in the strongly Republican state.  (By John Osborne)
