Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan says he has the support of the Vermont Democratic Party in his campaign for attorney general, but incumbent Bill Sorrell also expects to get the party’s backing.
Sorrell told WCAX-TV that the Democratic party often endorses more than one candidate.
Sorrell says the backing at Saturday’s meeting is a way to eliminate candidates who are not legitimate Democrats. He says he expects to get the party’s endorsement as he has in the past.
Donovan is running against Sorrell in the primary, and said he was "honored to get the party’s endorsement."
