Vermont Progressive incumbent legislator prevails over Republican challenger by just four votes

From Vermont Public Radio (H/T to paulie):

A Progressive Party lawmaker will return to the Vermont House after a judge rejected a challenge to a recount that showed her winning.

A recount Friday confirmed earlier election results showing Rep. Susan Hatch Davis ahead of Republican challenger Rodney Graham, of Williamstown, by four votes. Republicans challenged that recount result. But an Orange County Superior Court judge rejected that challenge.

    If my math is right, that means the Vermont Progressives have four state representatives and two state senators.

    Did you count the people that they cross-nominated with the Democrats?

    I think both of their senators cross nominate with the Dems.

    The House reps though I think just stick as Progs. I could be wrong though.

    According to the last whip count, they have 6 state house seats, not 4.

    I was including Pollina and Ashe in the Senate and Pearson, Hatch Davis, Burke and Edwards in the House. I did forget Haas though, so 5 state reps and 2 state senators.

    I don’t know if which ones are only Progressives and which ones are also Democrats. I believe he ran as a fusion candidate, but he is advertising his victory as a Progressive victory.
