Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Rosendale sent a fundraising email Thursday saying that his Billings office was vandalized earlier this week when Vice President Mike Pence was in the city campaigning for him. Billings police say the case has run cold with no evidence of motive or a suspect.

Vice President Mike Pence was the latest to rail against Montana’s Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester who faces re-election in November.

Over the past 4 ½ weeks President Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and now Pence have traveled to Montana to campaign on behalf of Republican challenger Matt Rosendale.
