Lisman says he won't run for Vermont governor

Posted: Updated:

A high-profile political activist in Vermont says he is not running for governor.

Bruce Lisman is the man behind Campaign for Vermont, an organization that has been actively advocating for economic and governmental reforms.

Lisman has been rumored as a potential challenger to Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont, either as an independent or a Republican.

But Lisman issued a statement Wednesday saying despite being urged to run; he believes he can best contribute to resolving Vermont's problems through his nonpartisan organization.
