Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Peter Welch, an independent and Democrat, respectively, have been regulars on MSNBC programming recently. Both pols are known to lean left, so it’s no surprise they’ve found a hospitable place on MSNBC, a cable news outlet that is widely seen to cater to the political left.
Now, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin, also a Democrat, is taking his turn in the spotlight. Recently elected chairman of the Democratic Governors Association, Shumlin’s star is shining considerably brighter in Washington these days.
Below is a link to a clip of an appearance by Shumlin on the April 2 “Morning Joe,” the channel’s morning program. He joined David Axelrod, a former senior advisor to President Barack Obama, to talk health care and governor’s races.
