Vermont dignitaries expected for Jeffords funeral

 RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) -- Vermont's congressional delegation and other dignitaries from across the state are due in Rutland for the funeral of former U.S. Sen. Jim Jeffords.
  
Jeffords probably is most well known nationally for leaving the Republican Party in 2001 and turning control of the Senate from the Republicans to the Democrats.
  
Jeffords, who was elected to the Senate in 1988 and retired in 2007, also was seen as one of the disappearing breed of moderate-to-liberal Northeast Republicans. He was known for championing the environment, education and the rights of disabled Americans.
  
The funeral for Jeffords is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Friday at the Grace Congregational United Church of Christ in downtown Rutland.
