HINESBURG, Vt. (AP) – A Vermont state senator says he’s going to seek the Democratic Party nomination to run for lieutenant governor.
Sen. David Zuckerman tells WCAX-TV he’s going to formally announce his candidacy in December.
Zuckerman, a Hinesburg farmer, has a long career in the Vermont Legislature, including time in the House and the Senate.
He says he will run as a Democrat and seek the endorsement of the Progressive Party, as he has for his Senate campaigns.
Zuckerman will face a primary against state Rep. Kesha Ram and Marlboro business owner Brandon Riker. Former Republican state senator and state auditor Randy Brock is also running.
The current Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, is running for governor.
