MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The candidates in the Republican primary for Vermont’s seat in the U.S. House are in a very tight race that’s too close to call.

Don Russell and Mark Donka were separated by about 2 percentage points late Tuesday with more than 90 percent of precincts reporting. Donald Nolte trailed them. The winner faces incumbent Democrat Peter Welch in November.

Meanwhile, Dean Corren appears in good shape to meet his goal of garnering the Progressive and Democratic nominations for lieutenant governor. He had sought Democratic write-in votes, and there was no other Democrat in the race.

As of 9:30 p.m., there were more than 3,200 write-in votes in the Democratic tally for lieutenant governor.

Corren is expected to face two-term incumbent Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Scott in November’s general election.
