St. Patrick’s Day Parades

“Jon Tester’s on a tractor!” — “We love you, Jon!”

On St. Patrick’s Day in Butte and Anaconda Jon gave the crowd plenty to cheer. He showed once aagain that he’s a Montana farmer with Montana values by driving a John Deere tractor in St. Patrick’s Day parades.

After decades of driving equipment on the family farm in Big Sandy steering a tractor through the streets of uptown Butte came easy.
