The Wednesday Read: Tester Time

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 reported it this way:

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.

If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” 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.

Today I write about election night coverage, Walsh & Plagiarism & NRSC, Absentee Ballots, Daines & fundraising, Ryan Zinke’s records, Student’s Mock Election, Battle for the U.S. Senate, plus I have a winner who is Making Montana Proud!

MT Senate 2014: Department of Defense

Yesterday the Associated Press (AP) reported that the Department of Defense (DOD) would be “overseeing a plagiarism investigation being conducted by the U.S. Army War College against Sen. John Walsh because the Montana Democrat is a member of Congress.”

The AP said the move was “unusual” which means the conspiracy theory people will be out in force. Of course, the Walsh haters and Rep. Steve Daines’ (Walsh’s opponent) supporters were also out in force. It was pure silliness and good for a laugh or two.
