A 500-mile, 14-county bicycle tour is giving Vermont’s lieutenant governor a new perspective on the state as he campaigns for a second term, not to mention plenty of time to think about the issues. Republican Phil Scott told the Bennington Banner that anyone running for statewide office has to criss-cross the state — he’s just taking a different approach to slow down the pace. Scott, who is being challenged by Democrat Cassandra Gekas, began his tour last week in the Northeast Kingdom, which recently announced a $500 million development project using the EB-5 foreign visa program. The program provides a visa to foreign investors for capital that creates jobs, and Scott said he would like to see it used in other parts of the state.
