Vermont Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Milne is still saying he may ask lawmakers for their votes when the Legislature convenes in January and elects a governor for the next two years.
No candidate for governor got more than 50 percent of the vote in the Nov. 4 election, and the Vermont Constitution says when that happens, it's up to lawmakers to decide.
Milne finished a close second to incumbent Democratic Governor Peter Shumlin, and last week, the Republican said he would not seek a recount.
But Milne issued a statement Tuesday saying he wants to ensure the views of his supporters are heard when lawmakers meet in January.
He said he'll make a further announcement about his plans in early December.
Shumlin's fellow Democrats have big majorities in both legislative houses.
