Matt Rosendale in Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

State Senator from Glendive and Republican Congressional Candidate Matt Rosendale is announcing his candidacy in a unique way.  Rosendale started a statewide tour Tuesday to announce that he would be running for the House of Representatives.  Thursday's stop was the Electric City.

From Glendive, to the state capital, to the nation's capital.  That is the goal state senator matt Rosendale has in mind.  While his candidacy has been known, he is going across the state to send his message.

Rosendale said "obviously Montana is a huge state, and just because you do an announcement in one part of the state doesn't mean that the population throughout the state has the ability to get that information.  So I'm trying to get into as many markets as I possibly can, so that we can spread the word."

Rosendale today met with several members of the Great Falls community.  He emphasized how he valued the views of Montana in Helena, he plans to take that same mentality to Washington D.C.

Rosendale talked about how "a large portion of (being) an effective candidate, an effective legislator is the big thing I bring to the table also focuses on the attention, and worked on the issues that are important to the citizens of Montana and share their principles and values, and I think that's what sets me above."

Rosendale is running for national office for the first time, and he knows the road ahead is tough, but he knows what he presents best and how that fits Congress.

Rosendale shared what his strongest asset is in saying, "I believe the ability to share ideas with others that may have conflicting points of view and to get them to start considering other options, other ideas."

Going across the state is a fun activity for the campaign, and Rosendale will use ways that will allow individuals to follow his campaign from anywhere.

Rosendale stated that between he and his staff, "we are enjoying meeting with all the citizens of Montana and folks will be able to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see the actual locations were going to."
