S.1, the liberal elections bill was defeated yesterday in the US Senate. That is good news for Montana and really good news for the nation as the Constitution gives the states a role to play in elections, as it should be.
It is also good for Montana that the bill failed as it showed all of us where our two US Senators stand. Senator Dianes voted “No” and Senator Tester voted “Yes.”
Senator Tester’s “yes” vote should be the beginning of the campaign to finally replace him as Montana Senator. He has revealed himself as following the Biden/Harris agenda when he should be voting on behalf of Montanans.
Besides Montana having an election for the new US House seat we should also begin the process of replacing Jon Tester. Conservative Republicans, and preferably veterans, should start lining up to be a new Montana US Senator. That is good news for our state and about time.
