Rosendale enters the Senate race

Matt Rosendale officially announced his candidacy for U. S. Senate on Feb. 9.

The current Republican representative for Montana’s second congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives will be up against Republican Tim Sheehy — former Navy SEAL and founder of Bridger Aerospace, a firefighting company based in Belgrade — in the primaries. The winner of that race will be on the general election ballot against longtime Montana Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

Montana’s Senate President Jason Ellsworth, R-Hamilton, and Speaker of the House Matt Regier, R-Kalispell, have backed Rosendale, along with 30 plus state legislators. Sheehy has been endorsed by U.S. Senator Steve Daines and former President Donald Trump.

Nationally, Republicans only need to gain two more seats in the Senate to take control of the chamber.

“Montana and America need a proven conservative leader representing them in Washington, which is why I’m running against Democrats and a D.C. Cartel puppet,” Rosendale said in a candidacy announcement.
