As we draw closer to the midterm elections, VPR is interviewing candidates seeking statewide office. Bruce Busa, of Readsboro, is running as an independent for U.S. Senate. That seat is currently held by Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is seeking re-election.
Busa said he is running because he isn't satisfied with the current members of the U.S. Senate, including Sanders.
VPR spoke to Busa about his views on immigration and health care, as well as how he views gun control and what he sees as "the abandonment of the scientific method" in schools today.
