Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell will likely draw two primary challengers.

MONTPELIER, Vermont: The candidate filing period for statewide candidates in Vermont doesn't open until May 14th, but the race for attorney general is already drawing attention.

Bill Sorrell, the state's current attorney general, has been making headlines over the past few months, drawing both regional and national attention to his office. In January, he lost the third in a series of high profile court cases, and later filed suit against a 2010 Republican gubernatorial candidate.

He will likely face two challengers in the August 28th Democratic primary: Chittenden County State's Attorney T.J. Donovan and Vermont Speaker of the House Shap Smith. On the Republican side, state Sen. Vincent Illuzzi is rumored to be considering a run for the office as well.[1]
