Great Falls Republicans Announce Candidates

Posted: Updated:

The Great Falls Republican Party has now announced who will be running in our upcoming election. Today the Great Falls Republican officially announced their candidates for their bid to represent Great Falls in Helena during the next state Senate and House session.

"For the last 2 times, yes for the last 2 sessions we have been very well represented well not quite half but close to half and the Republicans from Great Falls are a very moderate and reasonable I guess we classify ourselves as Main Street Republicans," Says Brian Hoven.

For this year's elections the Great Fall's Republican Party plans to make sure that 2014's election choices are equal for all seats.

"There is no reason for a seat to be empty out there should always be 2 choices for people to look at," says Sheridan Buck.

This years biggest platform issue is continuing to create, expand and defend jobs in the electric city.

"One of the focus areas that is most important is building business and climates for small businesses and also creating good paying jobs in the community," Says Fred Anderson.

The Great Falls Republicans say they have their own ideas but when it comes to doing what's best for Great Falls they are of one mind.

"We've got a lot of independent thinkers that will debate the issue as a Statesman. All in all I think most everybody will come together and do the job you know," explains Cleve Loney.
