Second Republican to Run for VT Governor
Another Republican is entering the race for governor of Vermont. WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley reports...
Roy Newton, a Rutland area publisher, announced Wednesday that he plans to be on the GOP primary ballot in August.
Newton is challenging Sen. Randy Brock for the Republican nomination. Democratic Governor Peter Shumlin has not said whether he will run for reelection.
WCAX-TV reports that Newton is the founder of the Vermont Ski Museum and runs several small publications in the Rutland area, including the Rutland Sun.
At a press conference on Wednesday, he said the state and country are being overpowered by government regulation.
