A high-ranking Vermont state senator is claiming victory in the five-way contest for the Democratic gubernatorial primary.

Senate President Pro Tem Peter Shumlin told The Associated Press on Wednesday, "It appears that we have won."

He holds a lead of less than 200 votes over state Sen. Douglas Racine, with Secretary of State Deb Markowitz a very close third.

The AP has not called the winner because the race is still too close with nearly all the votes counted.

If the vote count holds, either Racine or Markowitz could ask for a recount.

The winner of the Democratic primary will run in November against Republican Lt. Gov. Brian Dubie, who did not face a primary opponent.
