“We are in a crucial moment,” Welch said in a statement. “Families in Vermont are fighting through several crises: a global pandemic, the consequences of climate change and a race counting generations on. The result of this election will determine the control of the Senate and with it what we can accomplish for the families of Vermont.”
Welch was elected to Vermont’s only seat in the United States House in 2006. He is deputy chief of staff of the House Democratic Caucus and has pushed for energy reforms.
