Debate: Republican Candidates For Governor

Meg Malone
"Vermont Edition" hosts a debate with the two Republican candidates for governor on August 3, 2016.

Two Republicans are in the running for their party's nomination for governor, Businessman Bruce Lisman and Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott, and they're facing off in a live debate on Vermont Edition.

Businessman Bruce Lisman and Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott both join us, two candidates with very different backgrounds and experience. They'll answer questions from the moderator and from Vermonters, and the two candidates will get the chance to question each other as well.
