Notes: 
 
Sen. Patrick Leahy, first elected in 1974 and currently the longest-serving U.S. Senator, easily won an eight term, defeating Scott Milne (R)  and three other candidates.  Milne was the Republican nominee for governor in 2014 and came close to upsetting Gov. Peter Shumlin (D); he is president of Milne Travel and a Pomfret resident.  For his Senate campaign he ran an all volunteer effort. 

The five candidates met for two debates, the first in the studios of Channel 17 in Burlington on Oct. 18 (+) and the second in the studios of Vermont PBS in Colchester on Oct. 28 (+); additionally Leahy and Milne squared off on Vermont Public Radio on Nov. 2 (+).  


According to the FEC, for 2015-16 the Leahy campaign reported disbursements of $3.2 million compared to $106,458 for the Milne campaign (+).
