MONTPELIER - The Vermont Democratic Party stood solidly behind John Bauer in the Cedar Creek Room Monday. After all, they just endorsed him in his run to become Lieutenant Governor.

Bauer pledges to not take any money from corporate donors. Instead he is hoping to attain public financing for his campaign.

Public financing is available for candidates running for both Lt. Governor and Governor. No one has run on public financing in Vermont since 2004.
