Daines Announces Run For Senate

Posted: Updated:

Congressman Steve Daines announces he will run for the senate as does former Lieutenant Governor John Bohlinger who is now running on the democratic ticket.

A room at the Holiday Inn in Bozeman was packed as Daines made his long-anticipated announcement this afternoon.

During his speech, Daines addressed how government needs to have less involvement in our daily lives.

He said he believes Obamacare should be repealed because Montanans don't want it and our country can't afford it.

He adds he wants to see work done on the Keystone Pipeline.

"We're going to be talking about more jobs and less government and the importance of growing this economy," said Daines. "When we grow the economy, we grow more revenues, tax revenues to close the debt and deficient in this country, but also we need less government."

Greg Walden with the National Republican Congressional Committee and one of Daines' previous co-workers said since Daines was elected to Congress, he has been a consistent strong voice in fighting against Washington's financially irresponsible polices.
