Rumors Fly That Rosendale Will Make A Major Announcement

Matt Rosendale's long-speculated bid for the U.S. Senate appears to be on the brink of fruition.

Competition and Support

Rosendale's bid for the Senate seat will not go unchallenged. Businessman Tim Sheehy has thrown his hat into the ring and garnered support from current Senator Steve Daines. This sets the stage for an intriguing intra-party contest as both candidates vie for the Republican nomination.

A Familiar Foe

Should Rosendale secure the Republican nomination, he will find himself in a familiar position, facing off against Democratic incumbent Jon Tester. Tester emerged victorious over Rosendale in the 2018 Senate race, making this potential rematch all the more compelling.

Political Background

With a career spanning both state and federal politics, Rosendale brings a wealth of experience to the table. Having served multiple terms in both the Montana House and Senate, Rosendale most recently secured a seat in the U.S. House in 2022.

As Rosendale potentially prepares to formally announce his candidacy for the U.S. Senate, Montana residents and political observers alike will be closely watching to see how this latest chapter in the state's political landscape unfolds.
