Campaign finance reports filed Wednesday at Vermont’s Secretary of State’s office show two candidates aggressively fundraising in advance of the 2016 statewide elections — a campaign cycle that has started early with Governor Peter Shumlin declining to seek a fourth term. One is Democrat Matt Dunne. A former member of the Vermont House and Senate and a 2010 Democratic gubernatorial candidate, he has raised more than $100,000. While Dunne has yet to formally announce, he tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley that he is gauging public support for a gubernatorial campaign.
