BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Gov. Peter Shumlin says he isn't thinking much about a 2014 campaign for re-election, but is squaring up accounts from old campaigns.
At a news conference Monday, Shumlin said he's spending too much time doing the governor's job to worry yet about running for it. Meanwhile, in Montpelier, his campaign filed a finance report showing he would have a big head start over any challenger.
Shumlin had more than $915,000 left over from his 2012 campaign, and he raised $87,500 during the first half of this year. But he repaid a $275,000 loan he had made from his personal funds to his campaign in 2010. So his report filed Monday showed nearly $707,000 in cash on hand.
