Gubernatorial candidates raising big money


MONTPELIER, VT. >> New campaign finance reports show the four candidates for Vermont governor are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for their campaigns.

Tuesday was a filing deadline for Vermont political candidates. Both the Democratic and Republican parties have two candidates seeking the nomination for governor.

The report of Democratic hopeful Matt Dunne shows he has raised almost $570,000 in cash and contributions. His Democratic competitor, former Transportation Secretary Sue Minter, has raised just under $488,000.

Meanwhile, Republican businessman Bruce Lisman has raised about $625,000, while fellow Republican, Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, has raised about $509,000, including almost $95,000 he carried forward from earlier campaigns.

This story has been corrected to show Scott has raised about $509,000, not $414,000.
