Anya Tynio is challenging incumbent Rep. Peter Welch for Vermont's seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Political newcomer Anya Tynio is using her first run for political office to try to unseat six-term incumbent Democrat Peter Welch in the Nov. 6 election.

At 25 years old, Tynio is the youngest an individual can be to run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. She says her fresh perspective is an advantage for taking on big issues facing Vermont and the country.
Candidate Anya Tynio joins Vermont Edition to discuss her position on issues such as immigration, economic policy and health care.
