'Fighting For The House'

Oct 14, 2016

The battle for the U.S. House has taken a back seat to the political fireworks in the 2016 presidential and Montana governor's race. But with Montana's lone voice in the House on the line, U.S. Representative Ryan Zinke and MT Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau are running aggressive campaigns. MontanaPBS profiles their strengths, their political positions and their criticisms of each other in this half-hour documentary from producer Anna Rau. How close do they hew to their party's lines? How will they vote if Montanans elect them?

Denise Juneau, the Democratic candidate for Montana's seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, gave these comments to the media Saturday afternoon, after Donald Trump's taped comments from 2005 about women became public Friday.

Gay rights come up in the U.S. House debate, new polling puts Zinke ahead of Juneau by 3 percentage points, and are Bullock and Gianforte's latest campaign tactics just distractions? Sally Mauk and Rob Saldin dig in to these issues and more in this episode of "Campaign Beat."

Democratic House candidate Denise Juneau was asked during last night’s final U.S. House debate what she would do to protect the rights of LBGT individuals.

“Number one get elected,” Juneau said, as audience erupted in cheers. She said she welcomed that question from the standing room only audience at Heritage Hall, College of Great Falls-MSU.

Juneau said this race is historic for Montana because she’s a woman, Native American, and openly gay.

Three hopefuls for Montana’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives sparred in Great Falls last night, in their last debate before election day.
