As Power Shifts In Congress, What Question Do You Have For Or About Rep. Peter Welch?

Rep. Peter Welch stands at a podium with a Democratic Party banner behind him.

When Vermont's sole representative returns to the U.S. House in January, it will be a body reshaped by November's midterm elections. What question do you have for or about Rep. Peter Welch?

When Congress reconvenes next month, Rep. Peter Welch will be part of the Democratic majority in the U.S. House — the party's first majority since 2011. What role will he play in the new balance of power?

VPR is headed to Washington, D.C., in January to try to answer this question — and we also want to know what you want to know. Tell us: What question do you have for or about Rep. Welch as the balance of power shifts in Congress?
