Daines Files For U.S. Senate Seat

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Representative Steve Daines officially filed to run for Montana's U.S. Senate seat on Monday morning.

While in Bozeman, Daines used the Montana Secretary of State's online filing system to file to run for U.S. Senate, using his iPhone.

He stood in front of the home of RightNow Technologies, a Bozeman based software company where he created hundreds of high paying jobs.

Daines said he will create more jobs with less government.

"We need not just more jobs, but high paying jobs," said Daines. "The number one thing I hear from Montanans is that we don't want to export our kids. We want to be able to raise our kids here and educate our kids here."

Democrats Melinda Gopher, John Walsh, John Bohlinger and Dirk Adams announced they will run.

Republicans Dave Laser and Champ Edmunds announced they will run.

The filing deadline for the U.S. Senate is March 10.
