Emily Peyton and Dan Feliciano add voices to the debate

Posted: Updated:
TUNBRIDGE, Vt. - Two other gubernatorial candidates shared the gazebo with Scott Milne and Gov. Peter Shumlin for Saturday's debate --  Dan Feliciano who is running as a Libertarian and Emily Peyton who is running as an Independent.  

Peyton used much of her closing remarks to highlight hemp. "If you can make clothes out of hemp, if you can make hard plastics out of hemp, if you can reduce your arthritis because of hemp, if you can make insulation out of hemp, what is silly about that," Peyton said.

"We need to reduce the size of government and get government out of people's lives. We can do so by stopping single-payer, cutting spending and cutting property taxes. Those are the key themes that are keeping our economy from growing," Feliciano said.

Both Feliciano and Peyton lost to Milne in the Republican Primary.
