Conversation With Vermont Lieutenant Governor Candidate Brandon Riker
Despite being new on Vermont’s political scene, 28-year-old Democrat Brandon Riker has already raised more than $100,000 for his campaign for lieutenant governor. He began thinking about running for office in January when the Shumlin administration pulled back its universal health proposal and committed to the race in May. Riker tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley that he decided to run for lieutenant governor because it’s an office with great potential.
Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Brandon Riker is the managing director of a Vermont-based commodities trading firm focused on agricultural products.
