Laura Potter is the Liberty Union candidate for Vermont's only U.S. House seat.

Ahead of the November midterm elections, VPR is featuring interviews with candidates running for statewide office. Laura Potter is running as the Liberty Union candidate for the state’s lone U.S House seat. She’s challenging incumbent Democrat Rep. Peter Welch.

Potter said she had been asked multiple times by Peter Diamondstone, one of the founders of the Liberty Union Party, to be a candidate for office. This year she decided to take the leap.

Potter spoke with VPR about her views on immigration, health care, gun control and the impeachment process. Potter also said she is in favor of a "democratically-run, socialist" form of government.
