We now see a slate of official Republican Senate candidates in the Montana race hoping to oppose two-term incumbent Jon Tester (D). The candidate filing period drew to a close on Friday. As expected, state Auditor Matt Rosendale, former District Judge Russell Fagg, state Sen. Al Olszewski (R-Flathead Valley), and businessman Troy Downing all submitted the candidate declaration documents. The June 5th Republican primary winner will face Sen. Tester who is unopposed in the Democratic primary. The Green and Libertarian parties will also have a presence on the general election ballot. Sen. Tester is favored for re-election and just began his preliminary media advertising blitz last week.
