Montana Politics Steve Daines

Translating Steve Daines on the Senate

Regarding the 2014 Senate race, he told supporters in an e-mail:

“I am seriously and thoughtfully considering this race.”

In honest English:

I’m desperately hoping that Governor Schweitzer doesn’t enter the race so I can avoid  beginning a bid for the Senate only to get alpha-dogged two elections in a row.”

Remember this?


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.
