Republican U.S. House candidate Martha Rainville is calling for a constitutional amendment to limit lawmakers in the House and Senate to spending no more than 12 years in either chamber.
Rainville says the proposal is part of her campaign theme to restore faith in the national government and elective politics.
She says the country needs ordinary citizens to take their experiences to Congress.
During her campaign to succeed Representative Bernard Sanders, Rainville has talked a lot about improving government’s image.
Rainville is opposed by Democrat Peter Welch.
Welch campaign manager Carolyn Dwyer says the country already has term limits through elections.
