We can’t lose focus on bringing much needed fiscal discipline to this nation. You don’t hear too many politicians talk any reigning in spending or balancing the budget anymore but it’s one of the most pressing issues facing our nation.

Matt has always led by example. As State Auditor, Matt cut his operating costs by 23% and the bureaucracy in his agency by eliminating seven vacant positions. When Montana’s budget was in crisis a few years ago, Matt refused a pay increase even when every elected state official – Republican and Democrat – took one, and Matt has still refused a pay increase every year since.

Matt will bring his conservative leadership and fiscal discipline to Washington to end its spending addiction and work to finally deliver a balanced budget — just like we do here in Montana.
