Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will spend more time this week campaigning for Vermont Democratic gubernatorial candidate Sue Minter and David Zuckerman, the Progressive/Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.

Sanders will join Minter and Zuckerman at a rally at Johnson State College’s SHAPE Varsity Gym at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Sanders’ campaign said Thursday.

Minter is vying for the open governor’s seat with Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Scott. Two recent polls indicate the two are either in a virtual tie or that Scott has a slight lead. Zuckerman is competing for the open lieutenant governor’s seat with Republican Randy Brock.



According to Zuckerman’s campaign, Sanders will keep sharing the love at four more events Friday and Saturday, including:

  • 11:30 a.m. Friday at Lyndon State College’s Moore Community Room.
  • 1:30 p.m. Friday at Newport’s Gateway Center.
  • 5 p.m. Friday at the Tip Top Café in White River Junction.
  • 3 p.m. Saturday at Brattleboro Union High School.

Last weekend, Sanders held six rallies with Democratic state candidates. He also sent out a fundraising email urging supporters to contribute to Minter and Zuckerman’s campaigns.
