House Candidate Visits Billings

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A day after announcing his bid for the U.S. House, democratic candidate John Lewis is busy campaigning Montana's 56 counties.

Lewis was born in Billings, and he visited the Magic City Tuesday to share his concerns with congress and the government shutdown. John Lewis said he's dedicated to getting congress back to work and improving the looming problems on Capitol Hill since before the shutdown.

"We've got to get back to the basics, and get the government working again for families in Montana. I can hit the ground running, and I can see what's working in the federal government, and I have seen what does work. We need more of that," Lewis said.

As Montana's lone representative, John Lewis said he has high hopes of passing a farm bill and improving Montana's infrastructure. Lewis served on senator Max Baucus' staff in Montana and also D.C.
