Democrats Woo Vermont Republican

Tuesday, 22 May 2001 12:00 AM

Press reports said Democratic leaders have promised to make Jeffords a committee chairman if he helps them win control of the Senate. On Monday, a spokesman for Jeffords told reporters, "This is not about committee chairmanships. Regardless of party label, Sen. James Jeffords will continue to do what's best for Vermont and the nation."

Jeffords angered many Republicans earlier this spring when he refused to vote for President Bush's budget blueprint, going instead for a smaller tax cut proposal. The White House has made no effort to hide its irritation with him.
