Welch supports possible Clinton-Biden ticket in 2016

Rep. Welch

Vermont Congressman-at-large Peter Welch, a Democrat who endorsed then-Senator Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential primary, says he would like to see outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lead a ticket with Vice President Joe Biden in the 2016 race. Welch spoke on WAMC’s Congressional Corner.

“This is a honeymoon for Hilary Clinton," Welch said. "She has always had huge admirers, and now those who used to be her critics or skeptics are her admirers, and there's nobody more popular in the Democratic party now for the future than Hilary Clinton. She’s in a position to do what she wants to do.”
