Tell us about your experience with this online video, click here.
A congressional vacancy could represent a once-in-a-generation chance to reshape Vermont’s delegation, and it would surely trigger many more down-ballot contests. What would a vacancy mean for the way Vermonters are represented in Congress, and how might it affect the federal resources upon which we rely? Would voters look to elect a more diverse and representative delegation? Would a Republican stand a chance? How have congressional campaigns changed since Vermont last saw an opening in its delegation, nearly 16 years ago? An expert panel of veteran political professionals explores these questions and more.
