State senator endorses Russ Fagg for U.S. Senate

Print Article

To the editor:

I am proud to endorse Russ Fagg for the United States Senate.

Russ announced that he had received endorsements from over 100 current and former Republican leaders from around the state. I am on that list because I believe that Russ is the only conservative that can beat Sen. Jon Tester.

Russ Fagg is a fourth generation Montanan, a two-term Republican legislator, and was a Judge in Billings for over 20 years. Russ will represent Montana in the U.S. Senate because he is one of us. He understands Montana values and his campaign is Montana-focused.

Unlike some in this race, he is not self-funding or accepting massive amounts of money from out-of-staters and PACs. Russ is looking to receive the support of Montanans and he has. Following his impressive fundraising quarter, 80 percent of Russ’ money came from in-state donors which is in stark contrast to some of his primary opponents and even starker against his general-election opponent Sen. Tester, who has only raised 20 percent of his money in-state.

The choice for me is clear, I’m supporting Russ Fagg.

—Sen. Doug Kary

Montana SD22
