The Helena IR Endorses Jon Tester


The IR Editorial Board follows the Billings Outpost, Billings Gazette, Great Falls Tribune, Montana Standard, and Missoula Independent, offering its endorsement of Jon Tester to be the next Senator from Montana. While I’ happy to see the IR get this right, I can’t overlook this comment:

Nor did the board spend much if any time discussing Burns’ missteps, from his Abramoff-generated donations to his verbal gaffes. No one on the board doubts his honesty.

What, I wonder, would it take to generate a little doubt?

If you appreciate our efforts to hold Montana Republicans accountable and the independent journalism here at The Montana Post, please consider supporting our work with a small pledge.
