WINDHAM, Vt. (AP) - A primary candidate for the Vermont House of Representatives who ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat last month asked to have his name removed from the November ballot after he won the Republican nomination in a write-in campaign.
The Eagle-Times reports Christopher Moore, a Rockingham attorney, fell short in the Aug. 28 primary for a district seat in Windham. However, he received 31 write-in votes on the Republican side to win the party nomination.
Moore has requested that his name be removed. He said he would not accept the Republican nomination.
Moore ran as an independent in 2010 before filing as Democratic candidate this year.
