Rosendale declared victorious in race to represent Montana’s At-Large Congressional seat
HELENA, MT — In a race that was among the most expensive and hard-fought battles for a U.S. House seat across the nation, Matt Rosendale was declared the victor and will fulfill the role of being Montana’s lone voice in the United States Congress.
Despite being outspent nearly 2-to-1, Rosendale successfully garnered overwhelming support from voters across the state. At the time of this release [12:15 AM on 11/4/20], Rosendale leads his opponent, Kathleen Williams, 250,101 to 207,774 based on figures from the Montana Secretary of State.
“It is tremendously humbling to have earned the support of the hardworking people across our state. I think this election has made one thing abundantly clear—that Montanans want solutions. They want someone who will work just as hard every day serving the public as they do providing for their family—someone who keeps their promises, and who realizes that the job of a public servant is just that—to serve the public,” said Rosendale. “I know what Montanans are facing right now, and it’s not easy. We need to focus on getting the people of our state—and our nation—healthy again, and getting our economy back on track. We need to focus on fixing our nation’s healthcare system, protecting pre-existing conditions, and providing quality, affordable care.
And while I realize Rome wasn’t built in a day, it also wasn’t built by playing politics, and neglecting to address the real issues facing our country. I promise to always represent the people of Montana, to listen to their concerns, and above all, work to actually do something about them. I am incredibly honored to have received the support of so many, and I look forward to serving all Montanans in the United States Congress.”
