According to Jim

We had several stories on yesterday's Douglas announcement.

The story on the announcement from Louis Porter: Governor won't seek re-election.

The reaction of Republicans around the state (many of whom may have an eye on the governor's position) by Pete Hirschfeld: Who'll run for GOP?

And the Democratic side is preparing as well, from Susan Allen: Democrats see opportunity to regain governor's post

Across the state, the reaction was mixed: Gov. gets mixed reviews; although the reaction of Rutland politicians was more positive for the Governor: Rutland politicians salute Douglas.
