Five Debate In Final GOP Debate

Posted: Updated:
KALISPELL -

The ball is in the voters' court now that the five republican candidates for Montana's house seat have debated for the last time."I believe America's fixable," said former state senator Ryan Zinke of Whitefish, "I believe we can rebuild her."

Zinke, Elsie Arntzen, Drew Turiano, Corey Stapleton, and Matt Rosendale answered questions centered on economic issues and health care Wednesday night in Kalispell.

All five candidates agreed they would repeal the Affordable Care Act, saying they wanted less governmental control.

"We need to send some Montana ethics to Washington, D.C.," said state senator Elsie Arntzen of Billings.

"I believe in a moratorium on all immigration in this country," said Helena business owner Drew Turiano, "If we don't do that, it will basically be the end of the national republican party."

"The reason why I was chosen the leader of all the state senators unanimously is because I have the passion," said former state senator Corey Stapleton of Billings.

"It wasn't so that the government could restrain the people. It was so the people could restrain the government," said state senator Matt Rosendale of Glendive.

Whoever wins faces the winner of the democratic primary between former senator Max Baucus' aide John Lewis and former state representative John Driscoll.

The primary election is this Tuesday.
