VERMONT — Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Scott made official what has long been assumed — he will run for Vermont governor in 2016.

“I’ve made this decision because I believe too many families and employers are on the economic edge,” Scott wrote in his announcement letter Tuesday.

Scott, 57, says he can bring “new energy” and people of “different backgrounds” together. Vermonters “crave” a change in leadership he says in large part because the state is in trouble financially.

Karl Lindholm: Don & Jerry, Curt Gowdy, 'Balee Baloo,' and my Mom

My mother almost ruined me for sports.

When I was just a kid, eight or ten or so, I was listening to a Red Sox game on the radio at home, and the Red Sox unloaded on an opposing pitcher, scoring a bunch of runs, and driving the poor guy from the game.
