Democrat Dirk Adams explains decision to run for U.S. Senate

Posted: Updated:

Having moved to Montana in 1984, Dirk Adams is a 62-year-old small town rancher and businessman from Wilsall, Montana. Adams decided 30 days ago to make his first run for political office and believes his small business background will help him in this election.

"I think what I bring to the campaign and the opportunity I offer to Montanan's is they have someone who is connected with the lands, deeply connected with the states primary economic activity, agriculture, with actual hands on experience." Adams stated.

Coming from a three generation Democratic family, Adams has always been a democrat. He compared himself to his potential predecessor, and thinks they would have similar first terms and was surprised when he did not seek the 2014 term.

"Senator Baucus did a good job in his first term and I think I can do a good job I'm my first term I think my resume compared to Senator Baucus' the first time looks pretty good." said Adams "I wish Senator Baucus hadn't resigned, but I understand he did and I wish the governor would run and I understand he didn't, and I think I can bring something to this race"

Adams' campaign is just now getting underway for the U.S. Senate seat, and hopes another Democrat will join the race as he believes a primary election will be good for the party.
