Governer Race ShumlinBURLINGTON - Peter Shumlin will remain Governor of Vermont after winning the race over Republican candidate, Randy Brock. 

With 99 percent of the state's precincts reporting, Shumlin won the race with 170,482 votes to Brock's 110,612 votes. This accounted to 58% Shumlin to 38% Brock.

 Shumlin was introduced by his daughters at the Democratic celebration at the Hilton in Burlington Tuesday night.

"Vermont right now has, because of what we're doing not despite what we're doing, the 6th lowest unemployment rate in America. Let's keep moving forward," said Shumlin.

At the Republican party in Montpelier, Brock took the podium to speak to the relatively small turn out at the Capital Plaza Hotel.

"I will be speaking with (Shumlin) as soon as I can to wish him success in continuing his role of Chief Executive Officer of our state," said Brock.

Brock finished his conceding speech with a smile, "I want to thank all of the volunteers who helped us day in and day out to make phone calls, to drive people far and away in every corner of the state, and who have been of such tremendous assistance. Thank you all very much for your support."

Despite a massive celebration, Shumlin said to his followers, "We gotta get to work, We start (Wednesday) morning first thing."
