Vt. GOP: Statewide challengers to announce soon


MONTPELIER (AP) - The Vermont Republican Party says challengers to incumbent Democrats in statewide races will be announced in the near future.

According to party Chairman David Sunderland, some Republicans have expressed interest in challenging incumbent Democrats in some statewide races, but he was not sure when they might announce their candidacy.

All current statewide incumbents filed campaign finance reports for a reporting period that ended on March 15. Republican Randy Brock, who previously ran for governor in 2012, filed, but did not report any campaign contributions from this year.

The lone Republican state officer seeking re-election is Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, who reported $8,500 in contributions.

Filings from Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin show his campaign has more than $1 million in the bank for the upcoming election season.
