The Wednesday Read: Tester Files for Re-Election

I have great faith in the people of Montana; they can’t be bought. – Jon Tester

U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-Montana) filed the paperwork to run for a third term on Tuesday. Terms in the U.S. Senate are for six years.

Along with the filing, Tester’s campaign issued the following statement:

“As a United States senator, I have had the humbling opportunity to defend the state that three generations of my family have called home,” Tester said. “Over the years, we’ve fought to protect the Montana we know and love from outsiders while continuing to hold government accountable. Today, I’m honored to file to continue that fight for the people of the best state in the best country in the world.”

According to MTN News, there are four Republicans lined up to take on Tester: state Auditor Matt Rosendale, Big Sky businessman Troy Downing, former state District Judge Russell Fagg of Billings and state Sen. Al Olszewski of Kalispell.

They will face off in a June primary.
