He is set to face a crowded field of adult rivals for the Democratic gubernatorial primary on Tuesday, August 21.

While Ryan is no longer running for reelection, Bryce has adopted populist policy positions endorsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, who campaigned for him, and labor activist Dolores Huerta. "It's a state that's really welcomed me with open arms".

"Do you support capitalism?" They have been reversed under Republican President Donald Trump's administration, a victory for religious conservatives who only recognise traditional gender roles.

Hallquist said her campaign would focus on improving the state's economy, yet she acknowledged the symbolism of being an openly transgender candidate.

"It's inspiring for all young women out there that they can make a difference", Housley said.

Ethan Sonneborn, who finished last in Tuesday's Democratic gubernatorial primary with about 7 percent of the vote, said Democrats will need to hone their message in order to win in November.

Outside Vermont, though, she said she's happy to carry the standard as the candidate who, if elected, would be the nation's first transgender governor.

"We started this campaign to prove people are ready and willing to fight for an America that works for all of us".

'Look to Vermont, ' she said.

Democrat Jahana Hayes and Republican Joe Markley will battle in November for control of the House seat being vacated by Democratic Rep. Elizabeth Esty in January. This past weekend, Hawaii's Kim Coco Iwamoto fell short in her bid for the lieutenant governor nomination in the state's Democratic primary.

Santos, a former Meriden mayor, won the state GOP's endorsement and defeated candidates Rich DuPont and Ruby Corby O'Neill.

Baldwin says if Republicans don't unite Baldwin will win. Lamont claimed about 80 percent of the vote. If she wins, she'll be the nation's first transgender governor. "I mean, many of us in this country shed a lot of tears for what happened on November 8".

Hallquist will the Democratic primary in Vermont, CNN projects, becoming the first transgender gubernatorial nominee for a major political party, a breakthrough of both substantial and symbolic importance for LGBTQ Americans, in particular the trans community, which has for so always been shut out of the highest levels of elected office.

She is running for office on a platform of progressive causes that appear to be gaining steam, including Medicare-for-All, a $15 minimum wage, and criminal justice reform.
