COVID-19 And Health Care Issues Dominate U.S. House Debate
Candidates for Montana’s lone U.S. House of Representatives seat met in a debate Wednesday night hosted by MontanaPBS. MTPR’s Shaylee Ragar reports that in their first match up this election cycle, Matt Rosendale and Kathleen Williams traded barbed words as they pitched themselves as the best person for the job.
Montana's lone U.S. House seat is being vacated at the end of the current term. In November, Montana voters will have to select the candidate to serve as the state's Representative for the next 2-year term. Matt Rosendale (R), the current Montana State Auditor is running for the seat, and is being opposed in the race by former Montana Legislator, Kathleen Williams (D).
