Rep. Steve Howard's announcement that he will run for lieutenant governor this year cannot be described as flashy or overboard. Here's what he said on Facebook about an hour age:
After much thought and conversations with Vermonters throughout our state, and nearly 12 years of fighting for progressive change, I have decided that in the next couple of months I will formally announce my candidacy for Lt. Governor of Vermont in 2010. Follow me on Twitter www.twitter.com/rephoward to keep updated on our progress and get updates from the campaign.
Meanwhile, Rep. David Zuckerman, P-Burlington, who serves with Howard on the House Ways & Means Committee, tells my colleague Nancy Remsen that he's not running for LG. He's still thinking about running for state Senate in the Democratic primary.
