Congressman Peter Welch To Run For U.S. Senate In Vermont

November 23, 2021

U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) won’t run for re-election in Vermont, but an incumbent Vermont congressman will run for U.S. Senate in the state next year.

Peter Welch, the at-large U.S. representative for the state, will run for U.S. Senate next year. The Democrat has represented the entire state since 2006. Before that, he was a Vermont state senator.

“Powerful outside interests will come to Vermont to try to advance their interests, not ours. They know an open seat in Vermont could be the difference between passing our positive agenda and Mitch McConnell controlling the Senate again,” Welch said, according to The Hill.
