BILLINGS -

Another Republican announced that he would run for the U.S. House of Representatives.

Ryan Zinke, a State Senator, from 2008 to 2012 said he'll seek the seat presently occupied by, Republican, Steves Daines.

Zinke said his campaign is less about politics, and more about leadership. He also said the strength of the government is in the people, and wants Montana to be an energy efficient state if he wins.

"I don't advocate secession, or something like that what I advocate is American values is we have to return what has made America great," Zinke said.

Zinke also said he plans on doing that by focusing on better jobs, and equal opportunity.
