On his program this week, “Next Revolution” show host Steve Hilton criticized Vermont U.S. Rep. Peter Welch for his investments and said military veteran Gerald Malloy could upset the incumbent congressman and help the GOP secure the U.S. Senate in November.

Of course in his campaign he is trying to make out he’s a man of the people, palling around with Bernie and all that. But wait a minute Peter Welch, how exactly did you amass a multi-million dollar net worth despite earning a congressional salary of $174,000 a year?”
