And Then There Were Four ...

It's official (almost) — former Windsor County State Sen. Matt Dunne will enter the Democratic primary for governor.

"It will not be a big campaign launch with banners and crowds. It willbe a more informal occasion with family and a few of the many peopleI've met around the state who believe, as I do, that Vermont is readyfor its next great era," said Dunne in an email to potential supporters.

That brings to four the number of Democrats vying for the right totake on the GOP's presumptive gubernatorial nominee Lt. Gov. BrianDubie. It's not expected Dubie will face an opponent in the Republicanprimary.

Dunne joins Secretary of State Deb Markowitz, State Sen.Doug Racine (D-Chittenden), and State Sen. Susan Bartlett (D-Lamoille)in the race to succeed Gov. Jim Douglas, who announced in August thathe would not seek reelection.
