Saturday night two candidates, Jon Tester (D) and Matt Rosendale (R), participated in a debate for the U.S. Senate.

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!
If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.
Topics that I am providing commentary about today include Trump, Daines, and Twitter, Fagg vs Rosendale, Ethics Complaint, Tester’s number 14, the canceled summit, and One More Thing!

Today I’m taking a closer look at the two competing U.S. Senate campaign ads from Republican challenger Matt Rosendale and Democrat incumbent Jon Tester.
Tester’s ad was posted on YouTube May 8 and is titled, “Jon’s Got Our Back” As of this morning it has 1,257 views.
Rosendale’s ad was posted on YouTube May 13 and is titled, “Stepped In It.” As of this morning, it has 957 views.
Most of the time these ads follow each other on television.

It’s better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life. – Elizabeth Kenny
Montana’s Senior U.S. Senator, Democrat Jon Tester, is up for reelection this year. That means it’s Tester Time!
In case you missed it, Tester was one of 18 senators who voted against the short-term funding measure to reopen the government this week.
His “No” vote received a lot of attention.
Roll Call this way: reported it
Montana Sen. Jon Tester was the only red-state Democrat up for re-election this year to vote against a stopgap funding measure Monday to end the three-day government shutdown.
Senators are well-known for the changes they go through the last couple years of their six-year term. They attend more meetings, issue more press releases, and are friendlier to the voters.
Sure Tester does some of the same things, but his “No” vote on the short-term funding bill only gave his opponents some much-needed ammo.
