MONTPELIER — Former Democratic Windham County Sen. Peter Galbraith has registered as a candidate for governor and will announce his political plans at a State House news conference Tuesday.
Galbraith, who served two terms in the Senate, decided not to seek re-election in 2014. He registered with the Secretary of State’s office Monday and updated his political Facebook page to “Peter Galbraith for VT Governor.”
Galbraith has been mulling a bid for governor for several months. He recently participated in a news conference by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Matt Dunne to denounce corporate donations to political campaigns.
Galbraith, 65, is a resident of Townsend. He served as ambassador to Croatia during the administration of former President Bill Clinton.
Galbraith will join Dunne and former Agency of Transportation Secretary Sue Minter in a Democratic primary.
