US Congressman Matt Rosendale has easily won the primary, handily beating Kyle Austin, James Boyette, and Charles Walkingchild with over 75% of the vote.
Rosendale said it’s an honor that the people chose him for a second term, given they didn’t know how he would perform, and this is an extreme vote of confidence.
“To come up here, serve nearly 2 years and have them re-nominate you, that shows an incredible level of confidence that’s quite humbling.”
Rosendale went on to say that the message he’s been getting from his constituents that will drive their decision-making in the general election is the economy.
It’s the kitchen table. It’s the inflation, the cost of everything going up, the supply chain problems that are affecting everything from the grocery store to the manufacturer located in the industrial park and then the cost of fuel…They all have been caused by the decisions that have been caused by this administration.”
Rosendale will face Democrat Penny Ronning in the November 8 general election
