Gubernatorial Candidate Peter Diamondstone

All this week Vermont Edition is  getting to know the major party challengers for governor and lieutenant governor.

By his own count, Peter Diamondstone has been a candidate for statewide office almost two dozen times. This year, he’s the gubernatorial candidate atop the Liberty Union ticket, a party which he helped to found more than 40 years ago. He doesn’t face a primary challenge so he’ll be the Liberty Union nominee in the November election. Diamondstone spoke with Vermont Edition about his candidacy.
