Known Steve Daines supporters got an invitation Thursday to a special event scheduled for next week.
The event will take place at noon Wednesday at the Bozeman Holiday Inn. The release says this is an opportunity for Daines to thank his supporters, but some are speculating he will announce a run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Max Baucus.
Lt. Governor John Walsh, a democrat, has announced that he will run for Senate as has democrat Dirk Adams of Wilsall.
At least one republican had announced plans to run for the senate seat, but switched his sights to the House saying he was sure Daines would run for the Senate.
