HELENA, Mont. – Montana Republicans are more unified and electrified than ever before. In addition to the nearly 200 Republican candidates that filed for office, at least one Republican candidate is on the ballot in 116 out of 125 legislative races across the state as of the filing deadline on Monday, March 9th. This gives Republicans an immediate and substantial edge against the Democrats, who are running in less than 90 of the 125 legislative races.
“Montanans who prize freedom, liberty, and opportunity for all are in a better position than ever to elect candidates in 2020 that embody these values,” says Montana Republican Party Chair Don “K”. “As the numbers show, our party is more energized than ever before – in red and blue areas alike.
“100% participation is always our goal, but 92% in legislative races across the state is an outstanding achievement. I’m proud of my team, and I’m grateful to every Montanan who has become a part of the red wave. There is always room for more – and I encourage even more Montanans to get involved as we fight to preserve our freedoms and our Montana way of life. A red wave is coming!”
The further Democrats shift to the left on issues like the Second Amendment, border security, or a complete government takeover of healthcare, the more out of touch they become with Montanans and our values.
Our state and country has a clear choice between freedom or socialism in 2020, and Republicans are rallying to the occasion.
Montana will hold its primaries on June 2nd. If you’d like to join in on our efforts to uphold freedom in Montana and across the country, please contact MTGOPvolunteer@mtgop.org for information on how to get involved.
