HELENA, MT — Congressional candidate Matt Rosendale emerged victorious after a strong performance in the PBS’s debate for Montana’s lone congressional seat.
Throughout the debate, Rosendale demonstrated why he is the strongest candidate in the race by pointing to his strong support of the 2nd Amendment, his successful record of protecting and expanding access to public lands, advocating for fiscal responsibility, and lowering the cost of healthcare while supporting individuals with pre-existing conditions.
“Montana deserves a voice in Washington who realizes what hard work really looks like,” said Rosendale in his closing remarks. “My opponent on the other hand—try as she might to make the people of this state believe that she is bipartisan—is a wolf in sheep’s clothing if there ever was one. Her record is clear: She wants to strip Montanans of their guns and 2nd Amendment rights. She wants to implement a Bernie-Sanders style, government-run healthcare system. She wants to increase taxes on Montanans, while she advocates to use your taxpayer dollars to fund her campaign. Montanans deserve better than her far-left, California ideals and political double-speak. While her colleagues at Berkeley University may have thought more taxes and taking away people’s guns was a good idea—Montanans don’t. Montana is the last best place—and we need a representative in Congress who is going to fight to keep it that way.”
After the debate, Shelby DeMars, Campaign Manager for Matt Rosendale, issued the following statement:
“Montanans have a clear choice for Congress—Matt Rosendale: a hard-working Montanan who has produced real results for the people of our state, or Extreme Kathleen Williams, the activist darling of liberal elitists like Nancy Pelosi. It is clear that California Kathleen’s extremist values have no place in Montana, and tonight’s debate clearly showcased that Matt is a candidate of substance and Extreme Kathleen is a puppet of the Democrats in Washington, D.C.”
The next Congressional debate with the Montana Television Network is scheduled for this coming Saturday, September 26th.
