Vermont Lieutenant Gubernatorial election, 2014
August 26, 2014
November 4, 2014
Governor • Lt. Governor • Secretary of State • Attorney General
General election candidates
- Phillip Scott - Incumbent
- Dean Corren - Vermont Progressive Party candidate
- Marina Brown - Liberty Union Party candidate
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 real chance of winning a statewide office.
Dean Corren has a particular advantage because he has 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.
