Former Vermont Education Department Secretary Rebecca Holcombe (D) announced yesterday that she will challenge Gov. Phil Scott (R) next year. She becomes the first significant Democratic candidate to come forward. It is presumed Gov. Scott will seek a third term.
Vermont, like neighboring New Hampshire, limits its Governors to two-year terms. Therefore, even though Gov. Scott will look to run for a third time, he will have only served four years once his current term ends.
