Democratic candidate for U.S. Congress Kathleen Williams held a fundraiser in Bozeman late last week. It was at the home of some supporters on the southside of town.

Democratic U.S. House candidate Kathleen Williams will host roundtable discussions this month on social security, Medicare, and health care.
