RNC Chairman Michael Steele and the shiny red “Fire Nancy Pelosi” bus made appearances in Billings last night for a lively crowd of several hundred energized Montanans unhappy with the current state of affairs in our nation.
The mood was positive and the momentum of local Republicans was evident as local party leaders delivered brief motivating speeches to the cheering crowd. Congressman Denny Rehberg joked about the absence of Senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester as well as our governor. Betty Babcock, wife of former Montana governor Tim Babcock, who was also in attendance, said she hoped that November 3rd’s newspaper headlines declare a “Republican landslide”. If last night’s crowd is any indication of the election’s outcome, Montana Republicans will be smiling.
