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 an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
