Candidate cites Republican support
the associated press | August 04,2014
MONTPELIER ó Dan Feliciano, the Libertarian candidate for governor, says heís encouraged by the support heís been picking up from Republicans.
The comment came after Darcie Johnston ó who managed Republican nominee Randy Brockís campaign in 2012 ó endorsed Feliciano over the most high-profile Republican candidate, Scott Milne.
Both Feliciano and Johnston say Milne hasnít come out strongly enough against the universal, state-funded health care system Gov. Peter Shumlin wants to create.
Republican Chairman David Sunderland cautions that there are some Libertarian positions with which most in his party would disagree, including amnesty for nonviolent drug offenders.
Feliciano says heíd likely ignore that part of the platform and focus on fighting Shumlinís health plan and cutting costs within state government.
