3 Blue-state GOP Governors Aim to Patch Things Up With Trump

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Three Republican leaders of blue states who were critical of President-elect Donald Trump during the campaign have been talking among themselves about how to patch things up with the incoming administration.

Vermont Gov.-elect Phil Scott says he’s been talking with Govs. Charlie Baker of Massachusetts and Larry Hogan of Maryland about how to pursue common interests in Washington. Baker’s aides aren’t commenting. A Hogan spokeswoman says he’s eager to share ideas and pursue common interests with his fellow governors.

Scott tells The Associated Press the three have been talking at recent meetings of the National Governors Association and the Republican Governors Association. He says one area of focus has been how states will weather a possible repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act.
