MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s incumbent Republican Gov. Phil Scott has won his party’s nomination to seek his third, two-year term as the state’s top elected official.

Scott defeated four little-known Republican challengers to win his party’s nomination to run in the November election.

On the Democratic side, there’s a competitive race for the nomination between Lt. Gov. David Zuckerman, a former longtime legislator who was first elected to the state’s No. 2 post in 2016, and former Education Secretary Rebecca Holcombe, who has never run for office. There are also two lesser-known Democratic candidates.
