Politics Today: Welch out of the gate with political ad; Winters hires campaign staff

U.S. Rep. Peter Welch’s Senate campaign on Tuesday launched a new TV ad. Welch is the first candidate to go on air in the state.

The ad highlights Welch’s commitment to improving the lives of all Vermonters by protecting a woman’s right to choose, taking on climate change, cutting middle class taxes, reducing health care costs, and making childcare and housing more affordable.

“It’s thanks to our supporters that we are able to make an important early investment like this,” said campaign manager Ryan McLaren.

“From health care to climate change to protecting our democracy – there’s so much at stake with winning this race and holding onto a Democratic Senate majority. Peter is working hard to deliver for Vermonters every day and that’s why we have the strength and the enthusiasm we’re seeing. We’re not taking anything for granted.”
