Rosendale Gets A Boost From Trump

On the day that President Trump came to Big Sky Country, Voices of Montana had a full line up of politicians that were eager to hear what the president had to say.

The show started out with Montana Auditor, and current candidate for the US Senate, Matt Rosendale. Rosendale was quick to bring up that 3-term Senator, Jon Tester voted against tax cuts for Montana workers. Rosendale believes he has the experience in politics, to make a difference for Montanans in Washington DC.

 Debra Lamm, current chairwoman of the Montana Republican party then called us from the site of the Trump rally in Great Falls and praised all the volunteers in the party and also spoke on the donations that are being raised, so far, at a record pace for the candidates.

 President of the Republican Party, Scott Sales then took a break from stacking hay bales in Bozeman to join us over the phone. Sales wanted to throw his support for a special legislative session to try to win passage of their own ballot initiative on mining regulations and tax increases on tobacco products to extend the Medicaid expansion program.

We wrapped up the show with Grover Norquist, who is an American political advocate who is founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform, an organization that opposes all tax increases. He is also the primary promoter of the “Taxpayer Protection Pledge” a pledge signed by lawmakers who agree to oppose increases in marginal income tax rates for individuals and businesses.

 Listen in to the whole hour right here.
