Supporters and campaign staff of former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean are getting together to mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of his unsuccessful presidential campaign.
Longtime Dean aide Kate O'Connor says the festivities are set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at Oakledge Park in Burlington.
That's the date in 2003 when Dean stood before more than 5,000 people on Burlington's Church Street Marketplace and announced his candidacy for the 2004 Democratic presidential nomination, a bid that faded after his loss in the Iowa caucuses that January.
Dean earlier this year said he hadn't ruled out another try in 2016, but now he's calling that very unlikely.
