Vermont GOP Gov. Phil Scott, of Berlin — a one-time stock car driver and the GOP's lone statewide officeholder — has won the party's nomination to run for reelection in November, Decision Desk HQ projects.

Elected to his first two-year term as governor in 2016, Scott has focused his time in office on making Vermont more affordable and working to attract more people to the state to counter a demographic trend of an aging population with a shrinking workforce and fewer school-age children.

He defeated two little-known candidates in the primary.

The lone candidate for the Democrat nomination is activist Brenda Siegel of Newfane. Last fall she spent 27 nights sleeping on the steps of the Vermont Statehouse to highlight the state's homelessness challenge.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
