MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Dean Corren looks in good shape to pick up both the Progressive Party and Democratic nominations for lieutenant governor in the Vermont primary.

The former state representative from Burlington is running unopposed on the Progressive ballot and as a write-in candidate in a Democratic primary that has no other declared candidates.

Corren has sought to emphasize common ground among Democrats and Progressives, including support for a state-run universal health care system.

Corren is expected to face two term incumbent Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Scott in November’s general election.
