This interview first aired in April 2013, sixteen months before Curtis was chosen to replace John Walsh as Montana's Democratic nominee in the 2014 U.S. Senate election.

Ann Szalda-Petree interviews Amanda Curtis, math teacher and Representative to the Montana Legislature from Butte's House District 76. Curtis talks about the state legislative season, her personal reasons for participating in government, and Medicaid Expansion.
