Vermont's Two Main Gubernatorial Candidates Debate

Sep 14, 2018

Vermont's two main gubernatorial candidates held their first debate Friday at the Tunbridge Worlds' Fair.

Incumbent Republican Governor Phil Scott, who is seeking his second term, reiterated his long-standing call that the best way to move Vermont forward is to make the state more affordable. He highlighted that during his first two years in office he has cut taxes and presided over a resurgence in the state's economy, but there is more work to do.

Democratic challenger Christine Hallquist, who led a rural electric cooperative before she resigned to run for governor, says she is running for what she calls Vermont's forgotten communities that haven't enjoyed the same economic benefits as larger communities.
