Montanans Push for Actor Jeff Bridges to Run for U.S. Senate

Posted: Updated:
MONTANA -

As Montana democratic leaders scramble to nominate a candidate to replace Senator Walsh for the U.S. Senate race, hundreds of Montanans have already voiced their choice for nominee, online, for actor Jeff Bridges.

Liz Pratt of Billings created an online petition on change.org to encourage the long-time Livingston resident to run for U.S. Senate.

So far the petition has garnered more than 950 signatures.

Thousands have even showed their support on Facebook with a page titled "Jeff Bridges for Montana U.S. Senate"

Bumper stickers that read "#SenatorDude" are floating around the state to show support for the actor and referencing his character in the Coen brother's cult classic "The Big Lebowski."

Candidates have until Saturday to decided whether they will make a run for the democratic nominee. Neither Bridges nor his publicist have commented on whether he is considering throwing his hat into the ring.
