Candidates for U.S. Senate and House of Representatives

Posted: Updated:

There eight people running for U.S. Senate and nine listed on the June Primary ballot for U.S. House of Representatives in Montana.

We invited each of the candidates to come to our studio and record a one minute message about themselves for voters to see. 

These messages are intended for the candidate to speak about themselves and why they feel they are the right person for the job.

Each candidate was allowed one minute to speak. Some chose not to use all of their time others were allowed to finish their thought once the minute was up.

Lynda Moss will appear on the June Primary ballot but is not listed below. While Moss was invited to participate she informed us that she was suspending her campaign.

The incumbent will appear first among the candidates seen below.
