Vermont lieutenant gubernatorial election, 2014
August 26, 2014
November 4, 2014
Governor • Lt. Governor • Secretary of State • Attorney General
The absence of a Democratic candidate in this race, coupled with Vermont's current leftward lean, mean that the third-party candidates running for Vermont Lieutenant Governor, Dean Corren of the Vermont Progressive Party and Marina Brown of the Liberty Union Party, have a better chance than usual of winning a statewide office.
Public financing for Corren
Dean Corren has a particular advantage because he qualified for public funding, according to Ballot Access News. The requirements to receive public funding in Vermont are quite strict and Corren is the only candidate to qualify since 2004. This is likely to give him a financial advantage over the other candidates, including incumbent Republican Phillip Scott.
Corren's campaign had reported $38,496 in media purchases by mid-October, compared to no media purchases for Scott. The Vermont Progressive candidate has used that money to purchase radio and TV spots along with billboards.
Corren has earned endorsements from Sen. Patrick Leahy (D), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), Rep. Peter Welch (D) and Gov. Peter Shumlin (D). Scott has received endorsements from state legislators including Richard Mazza (D) and Richard Sears (D).
