Larry Drown of Northfield is running for Congress this year. Drown is seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Vermont’s independent Representative Bernard Sanders.
This is Drown’s third bid for statewide office. In previous campaigns, Drown ran as a Republican. But he says he’s unhappy with what he calls the ever-widening gap between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” Drown says Sanders has done a good job identifying the problem, but he has done little to close the gap.
