June 12, 2023

HELENA, Montana – On Saturday, June 10, members of the Montana Republican Party voted to re-elect Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt at their Officers’ Convention for a third term. Vice Chairman and State Representative Lola Sheldon- Galloway was also chosen to serve a third term as Vice Chair.

Chairman Kaltschmidt released the following statement after the vote:

“It is an honor to be re-elected as the Chairman of the Montana Republican Party. I want to thank the members of the MTGOP for choosing me to lead our party for another two years and I look forward to serving our party in this critical role once again.

Since I have been Chairman, the MTGOP has achieved historic success. Republicans in Montana now maintain control of 8 out of 9 statewide offices. Thanks to the hard work of our elected Montana State Legislators, the GOP supermajority had an incredibly successful 68th legislative session. Through our strong grassroots movement, exceptional team, and continued momentum, we will continue to advance conservative values across our state in the 2024 election cycle.

I have no doubt that next year we will elect Republicans up and down the ballot. Republicans are focused on making Montana bright red and most of all retiring Democrat Jon Tester from his Senate career.

Our convention this weekend demonstrated the enthusiasm among Montana Republicans, and that together, we are stronger. Montana Republicans are more united than ever before, and we look forward to victories across our state next year.”
