Race background

The absence of a Democratic candidate in this race, coupled with Vermont's current leftward lean, meant that the third-party candidates running for Vermont Lieutenant Governor, Dean Corren of the Vermont Progressive Party and Democratic Party and Marina Brown of the Liberty Union Party, had a better chance than usual of winning a statewide office.

Campaign finance and spending

Dean Corren was initially thought to have a financial advantage because he qualified for public funding, according to Ballot Access News.[3] The requirements to receive public funding in Vermont are strict and Corren was the only candidate to qualify since 2004. In the event, however, Corren was limited by the $200,000 cap on public spending, while incumbent Republican Phil Scott outspent him, amassing $233,347.53 in expenditures by November 3, 2014.[4]

Corren's campaign had reported $38,496 in media purchases by mid-October, compared to no media purchases for Scott. The Vermont Progressive candidate used that money to purchase radio and TV spots along with billboards.[5]


Corren earned endorsements from Sen. Patrick Leahy (D), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), Rep. Peter Welch (D) and Gov. Peter Shumlin (D). Scott received endorsements from state legislators including Richard Mazza (D) and Richard Sears (D).[6]
