Representatives Give us Their Thoughts on the Start of the Election

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

The campaign season is underway with candidates officially filing today with the Montana Secretary of State's Office.

This year's election will decide open seats in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

Among the political hopefuls is state senator Matt Rosendale from Glendive. The republican candidate for Montana's lone U.S. house seat was first elected to the Montana Legislature is 2010. Rosendale says this election will be all about proof in the pudding and that,

"This is the unique opportunity that the citizens of Montana have in this election cycle, because my opponents have all served in the state legislature, similar to myself, so they won't have to depend and rely on campaign promises. They're going to be able to go back and look at the records of all the folks running for the United States House of Representatives this time, and when they do, they will see that clearly I stand out as the most consistent supporter of resource development and property rights and gun rights for the citizens of Montana."

A record number of candidates ran for election in Montana in 2012. Secretary of State, Linda Mcculloch says she doesn't expect that this year, because it's a midterm election.

The filing period runs until March 10, and filing can be done in person, by mail or online.
