Breaking….. Yes, Denny is Challenging Jon Tester (Is anyone really surprised?)


All of the speculation surrounding Denny Rehberg‘s political plans for the future is being put to rest. Thankfully rollcall.com is breaking the “news” that Denny Rehberg is indeed challenging Jon Tester‘s senate seat.  I was getting really tired of sitting on the info while political insiders claimed he was focusing on his House seat now in light of the successful fundraising by Steve Daines.   Michele Bachmann is speaking at the Lewis & Clark Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner where Rehberg is expected to make his announcement.

Steve Daines is expected to announce Thursday that he will be dropping his senate challenge to Tester and instead running for  Rehberg’s empty house seat.  Daines was off to a great start fundraising and it is doubtful that he could have raised so much so quickly running for US Congress.

Tester has made quite a few enemies on the left lately, in part due to his vote against granting amnesty for children of illegal aliens.  He’s managed to run under the radar in Montana however, voting exactly like Max Baucus most of the time while escaping criticism.  Will Rehberg’s challenge produce a Republican senator from Montana or will our state lose all GOP representation in DC?

  1. I’d rather see Denny use his new found power as one of the 13 Cardinals for a while and have him challenge Baucus in 2014.

    Montana will lose a lot of clout if it has a new face in the House in ’12, a new face in the Senate in ’12 and another new face in the Senate in ’14. (after Baucus loses in ’14)
