Peter Shumlin for Governor! (of Vermont)

Peter Shumlin, a Senator from Vermont, is running for Governor.  He has vowed to cancel the state's contract with CCA and bring Vermont's inmates home:

"Currently almost 700 inmates are housed in private, out-of-state prisons owned by the Corrections Corporation of America. This contract costs taxpayers roughly $18 million a year and poses a threat to public safety when inmates return more dangerous after mixing with populations in other states. The CCA contract will be terminated if Peter is elected."
