Chairman Essmann Statement on Matt Rosendale’s Run for State Auditor
Helena, MT – Chairman of the Montana Republican Party Jeff Essmann released the following statement today on Senate Majority Leader Matt Rosendale’s decision to run for State Auditor:
“I’m really excited and proud of Matt for deciding to run for State Auditor. He’s a trusted and true conservative and is a strong candidate for this office. While Jesse Laslovich has lobbied to impose Obamacare on Montana families, Matt can be counted on to put the interests of Montana families first and is committed to bettering their lives. Matt is someone Montanans can always count on to be on their side.”
“Matt will continue to lead the fight against Obamacare in the State Auditor’s office and he will bring accountability to this office. Obamacare has greatly harmed our families by forcing ever increasing health care premiums on them– despite promises from both Obama and Jesse that premiums would be reduced. Matt will work to open up our health insurance market and will be a voice for all Montanans as he fights against government-run health care and works towards health care solutions. You look at Jesse’s time in government and he epitomizes the definition of a career politician. It’s clear that Jesse is committed to being part of the bureaucracy.”
Matt is a family man, rancher, real-estate developer, and serves as Majority Leader in the Montana Senate representing SD-18 from Glendive.
