I’m honored to serve as the next Chairman of the Montana Republican Party. All my life, I’ve been supporting the conservative cause in Montana – and I’m looking forward to continuing to advance our cause as your next Chairman.”

With seven out of eight federal and statewide offices on the ballot next year, we have one goal to achieve: win every single one of our races. We’ll take the time to invest, recruit, and build a winning team so we’re ready to hit the ground running and win next November. By working together, we will grow conservative leadership across Montana from the local, state, and federal level, protect our Montana way of life, and defend liberty and freedom for all Montanans.”

I want to thank our outgoing Chairman, Debra Lamm, for the strong position she left the Party in. I appreciate her service and dedication to the Party over the last two years, and the great work she’s done to advance the conservative movement here in Montana.”
