Montana father, son political duo

Posted: Updated:

It's the day after the big election and the results are in. One Treasure State family has two political seats in the family.

Montana State Auditor-Elect, Matt Rosendale, says he has never pushed any of his sons to follow in  his footsteps. It was more like being in the right place, at the right time.

When a Legislative campaign started recruiting for candidates for House District 51, Rosendale says they fell short. That's when Rosendale called his son, Adam.

Rosendale says Adam jumped all over the opportunity, since he's seen his dad serve on the lLgislature for the past 6-years.

"You've got another family member that has participated in the process with you, you know that they really understand that  exactly the commitment that it takes more so than you know than the others," he said.

Republican Adam Rosendale is the new State Representative for District 51. As for Matt Rosendale, he will make the transition from the Montana State Legislature to the office of State Auditor.
