The Vermont Senate roster lists him as a Progressive, but David Zuckerman runs for office as a Democrat. Thursday night he officially launched his campaign for Lieutenant Governor as a Democrat. The second-term state Senator, an organic farmer by trade, will also seek the endorsement of the Progressive party. Zuckerman tells WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley he is running for Lieutenant Governor because the position offers a number of opportunities to enhance work he has done in the legislature.
David Zuckerman faces House representative Keisha Ram and businessman Brandon Riker in a Democratic primary. Former state auditor and state Senator Republican Randy Brock and Rutland physician Independent Louis Meyers are also running for Lieutenant Governor.
