Senator Tester's victory speech and what his plans are next

Posted: Updated:

Senator Jon Tester broke down to tears this morning during his victory speech.
Thanking those who voted for him and laying out what he hopes to accomplish in his third term.

We've done everything we can do and we've got a lot more to do to keep our promises weve made to the veterans of this country, said Senator Jon Tester.

Senator Jon Tester's victory speech touched on a number of topics like Montana values, veteran care and even forgetting party lines for what's best for the country.


We need to get some things done in Washington D.C. We need to work together and put aside the political pettiness and work together to get things done, said Tester.

With one of the most highly anticipated and public races in the country, Tester said this was no easy feat.


This was a tough race. It was a race that broke records. When I believe it's all said with the number of people who voted in our great state and in amount of money spent, said Tester.


Montana spoke loud and clear about where they want the state of Montana to go. Because Montanans know the challenges we face. Montanans know what we need in this state as a rural state.

Senator Tester wrapped up with an invite to President Trump to come back to Montana, but this time not for a campaign rally.

I hope the president comes back. Many times, I do, in all seriousness not for political rallies but to see the challenges we have in our state.

Now that Tester has been re-elected he is staying busy. He spent the day wrapping up a few things here in Great Falls including an interview with CNNs Anderson Cooper. They talked about a variety of things including the firing of Jeff sessions to this mornings election results.

Tester told KFBB he is headed back up to Big Sandy for the remainder of the week.  He will be back in D.C. on Tuesday where he'll get back to work on the farm bill amidst other Montana issues.
