Former Burlington Mayor Bernard Sanders became the first socialist in the U.S. House of Representatives in 40 years Tuesday by ousting Republican Rep. Peter Smith. With 96% of the precincts reporting, Sanders had 108,061 votes, 56%, to 75,604 votes, 39%, for Smith. The comparison between Sanders and the last House socialist, Vito Marcantonio, highlights a significant change in the left wing of American politics. Only three members of Congress in this century have carried the socialist banner.

Vermont, once known for its rock-ribbed Republicanism, sent Mr. Smith to Washington two years ago--but may replace him with a socialist. Newspaper polls in the Green Mountain State show a dead heat between Peter Smith, 45, a moderate Republican with a strong record on the environment and education, and Bernard Sanders, 49, an independent-socialist and the former mayor of Burlington, for the state's only seat in the U.S. House.
