With the race for the Democratic presidential nomination so close, Vermonters are paying particular attention this year ...because our own primary in two week could have an impact.

But perhaps no presidential campaign engaged the state more than that of native son Calvin Coolidge..back in 1924. It was Coolidge's only presidential run...he'd taken office only a year earlier when President Warren Harding died. Presidential Scholar Willard Sterne Randall of Champlain College spoke with VPR's Steve Zind about Coolidge's campaign.
