June 7, 2022

HELENA, Mont. – Montana Republican Party Chairman Don “K” Kaltschmidt released the following statement in response to James Brown advancing to the general election in November in his campaign for the Montana Supreme Court:

“Congratulations to James Brown in his race for the Montana Supreme Court by advancing to the general election in November to take on former Governor Bullock’s appointed liberal justice, Ingrid Gustafson,” said Chairman Kaltschmidt. “The people of Montana made it clear tonight- they are tired of the cycle of liberal activist judges who use their power to further the Democrats political agenda.”

“By electing James Brown to the bench in November, Montanans are sending a resounding message that we want judges who will interpret the laws based on the Constitution and not rewrite them to serve the Democrats’ political interests. Having been endorsed by Governor Gianforte, Senator Daines, Congressman Rosendale, Attorney General Knudsen, the Montana Republican Party, and over 80 Republican legislators, Montanans can be confident that James Brown is the right person for the job who will defend our constitutional rights.”

Having finished in the top two for the Montana Supreme Court race, James Brown will face off against liberal activist judge Ingrid Gustafson in November for her current seat on the Montana Supreme Court.
