Caught My Eye…

To all Americans tonight, in all our cities and towns, I make this promise: We will make America strong again! We will make America proud again! We will make America safe again! And we will make America great again. – Donald J. Trump 07/21/16

To say you are my friend

You just stood there grinning

MT Legislature: Dark Money

Tailored suits, chauffeured cars
Fine hotels and big cigars
Up for grabs, all for a price
Moneytalks by AC/DC

The Montana Legislature has been must-watch entertainment for the past few weeks, and we’re getting to a time in the 90-day session where the rubber meets the road. Members are a little tense and cranky. It’s a circus!

There are several reports from newspapers across the state today about the so-called “dark money” bill (Senate Bill 289) that was brought before a House committee yesterday. The Associated Press, Lee Newspapers, Great Falls Tribune, and the Bozeman Daily Chronicle all admirably covered the hearing.

MT Campaign 2014: Two Weeks!
